TOP-DOWN DESIGN

a deductive approach to the design of a system or product, such that the model is motivated by conceptual guidelines instead of empirical information would be the design of menus or other displays of operations on a computer interface. These usually adhere to a hierarchical structure from general operation classes to groupings of particular jobs through a sequence of submenus.

TOP-DOWN DESIGN: "A top-down design would be preferable."
