Design rationale can help solve difficult problems, aid design reviews and make design reuse easier. It is observed that the capture and reuse of rationale tends to decrease during the detail design phase. The inability to connect rationale to geometry is identified as a probable cause. A solution is proposed to increase the ease of design rationale capture during detail design by creating links between design rationale nodes and the corresponding parameters in the CAD design. Further implementation and testing of these concepts is discussed
