7.7.1. Internal TTK Technically Fail as plans dont work HB Despite many many designs , it is the designer that gives intelligence to the design Feedback is important because you might never know you are driving off a cliff KN Process can be done manually , but it is time consuming resolution of sharp edges TBK technical issues Plans do not show intention of sky-gardens Process is linear, sometimes designers work backwards
