Designing consumer products has grown more challenging due to the increasingly complex characteristics of these products. Design research has promoted the use of scenarios –concrete stories about product use- to support the design process. However, design practice still lacks a thorough guidance that integrates various scenario uses effectively. In this paper, we describe a software concept that guides designers in generating meaningful scenarios. Inspired by design practice, we expect the support tool to serve as a framework for documenting design knowledge, enabling designers to make well-informed decisions.
