The paper deals with the status quo and how this is likely to change in the coming decade as regards computer implementation. The design-detailing process is looked at from different angles such as the steps the process follows, the persons involved, the methods used and the formats used for schedules and sketches. Time and cost implications are addressed. From this, steps that can be automated by using computers are extracted and suggestions are made as to how these should be practically applied in an integrated environment. A practical example is presented.
