In this contribution, the last of the four application domain models is presented. The model, implemented as an ontology, covers the rationale underlying the decisions in design projects. The ontology supports the representation of concrete decisions for documentation purposes as well as generalized decision templates, which can serve as guidelines for designers and help to reduce the effort for documenting concrete decisions.
