Software designers make decisions covering a wide variety of aspects of the software to be designed through nested, intertwined processes. Some of these dependencies among design decisions might not be obvious, especially for people who didn't start with the project at the beginning of the design process. Extending or altering an existing design decision without fully understanding its dependencies might result in a deterioration of the quality of the software design. Design practice streams (DPS) tools help designers browse the segments of video data relevant to a particular topic by specifying a region on a whiteboard or by choosing a few terms used in a meeting transcript to further investigate the point of interest effectively.
