Following the procedure used for system level, a subsystem design is created from the subsystem requirements in order to define a system that meets the requirements. The subsystem level will require more information about implementation, for example, what hardware and software will be used. 13 provides more information about the contents of the subsystem design document. From this point, the process requires less system design engineering and less multidisciplinary engineering, but this depends on the scale of the initial project.

What the end-user wants, what he wants to pay, what the customer is willing to invest, and what the supplier can deliver, so that: On the one hand, the customer: • • • gets a product in time, for a reasonable price, with a reasonable chance of success in the market. While on the other hand, the supplier: • • • can build the product, with sufficient margin, with acceptable risks in the development process. The end users will ensure success in the market if the product has a desirable combination of features (or functionality) for a competitive price.

In reality, systems behave linearly only on a part of the spectrum. Even more so, when a technology is stretched, often a paradigm shift has to be made. One example is the telephone. Originally, the connections were made by hand, by a telephone operator. With the increasing number of connections this became impossible, so a paradigm shift was needed: automated telephone switches. At first these were electro-mechanical switches. Nowadays, these are completely digital. The shifts from manual to electro-mechanical, from electro-mechanical to fully electrical, and from electrical to digital meant changes in relation between for instance cost and performance; or performance and energy consumption; or the space and number of lines they can serve.
