In this research in design automation, two views are employed as the requirements of a system-namely, the functional requirements and the operations concept. A requirement analyst uses data flow diagrams and system verification diagrams (SVDs) to represent the functional requirements and the operations concept, respectively. System Architect's Apprentice (SARA) is an environment-supported method for designing hardware and software systems. A knowledge-based system, called the design assistant, was built to help the system designer to transform requirements stated in one particular collection of design languages. The SVD requirement specification features and the SARA design models are reviewed. The knowledge-based tool for synthesizing a particular domain of SARA design from the requirements is described, and an example is given to illustrate this synthesis process. This example shows the rules used and how they are applied. An evaluation of the approach is given
