Computational synthesis (CS) researches the automatic generation of solutions to design problems. The aim is to shorten design times and present the user with multiple design solutions. However, initializing a new CS process has not received much attention in literature. With this motivation, this paper presents a framework to structure and model routine design to assist the development of new CS processes. First, concepts are presented and used to propose a structure for artifactual routine design problems. Latter, base models (building blocks) for creating new designs are described. Finally, a classification of design families according to its structure and models is presented together with its relation to know CS methods.
