This paper studies engineering asset management from the viewpoint of
human capital and design knowledge. Design reasoning pattern (DRP) models are
valuable for capturing and managing design knowledge. DRP models aim to ex-
plain how designing of a product should be done in a rational way in a specific
case. Also the models support recognising of design sequences which aim to de-
scribe for example what should be defined first. Our empirical findings reveal
several challenges and also some misbeliefs related to making of these models. In this paper, we have recognised six main challenges which relate to generality, validity, ambiguity, contradictions, logic and complexity of DRP models. These
challenges are discussed, and different solutions and ways to deal with and benefit from these challenges are suggested. As a conclusion, we state that DRP models enable benefits for managing and steering design activity.
