When beginning to investigate `creativity in detailed design' it becomes apparent that the literature and discourse regarding the terms; conceptual and detailed design are confused at a point or de nition. Is detailed design the design of components at low systems levels or is it activity that occurs in every design process? In this paper the authors argue the latter. An integrated process is described emphasizing the differences between the systems levels of design and the design activities process. The integrated model will help to position future research into the support for creativity in detailed design

Keywords: Design process, Systems levels, Creativity.
