This is an explanation of the mechanism behind how some machine of system works. This should reveal existing or proposed functional mechanisms/workings, or expose a Design Rationale. This can apply to hardware and software. How it works can be applied to:

  • mechanisms such as gears, engines, and pulleys
  • hydraulic/pneumatic
  • electronic
  • functions based on thermal properties
  • complex systems or ecologies, where the how it works is based largely on the relationships between the parts
  • how things are made
  • etc
