In interactive design processes, strategic decisions are made at different levels. To support designers, design support systems need to include corresponding strategic knowledge at these levels.

These levels are identified in reasoning about the manipulation of requirements and their qualifications, reasoning about the manipulation of design object descriptions and reasoning about design process co-ordination. Instances of strategic knowledge illustrate the different levels
