That means that the group should first of all produce and differentiate a large number of design ideas in order to develop a comprehensive problem view. This differentiation has to be reduced during group interaction if the group is ever to reach a final design proposal. For that purpose, increased activity towards the integration of concepts must occur. This pattern of first divergent processes (differentiation of ideas) followed by convergent processes (integration of ideas and concepts) is typical for design processes (Boos 2006b).
