It can be seen that the example of the design process given above does not follow the layout of BS 7671, and even the example shown is an oversimplification of the real process. However, the designer familiar with the earlier versions would have no difficulty in applying BS 7671:2008. In essence, the designing process will inevitably mean numerous references back and forth throughout BS 7671, and only experience will reduce the iterative procedure.
