The paper presents a systematic prescriptive framework for designing novel artifacts. The framework integrates activity, outcome and requirement-solution elements and supports conceptual and early embodiment phases.Activity, outcome, requirement and solution represent the human part of problem-solving, properties of artifact at different abstraction levels, characteristics of what the artifact should have at different abstraction levels and means to satisfy requirement(s) at different abstraction levels, respectively. Generate-Evaluate-Modify-Select (GEMS), State change-Action-Part-Phenomenon-Input-oRgan-Effect (SAPPhIRE) and co-evolving requirement and solution are used as activity, outcome and requirement-solution elements. The framework is divided into requirement and solution-synthesis stages. In the requirement-synthesis stage, requirements at different levels including SAPPhIRE are generated, evaluated, modi ed and selected. In the solution synthesis stage, solutions at different levels of SAPPhIRE are generated, evaluated, modi ed and selected

Keywords: Model, Framework, Novel, Activity, Outcome, Requirement, Solution
