re: Defining the system-level design

This seems like a fantastic method. However, I wonder if the designer should also consider future-proofing. Upgrades in firmware or other components need to follow upgrade-safe customization practices and principles "Part of task definition is to analyze the various software functions and determine which, if any, functions should be combined" - You don't want to combine something that will need to be broken down later. Could free mind-mapping software can help pull in a soft copy of this task for archival purposes?
