    The Design Framework is a visual modeling tool that aims to help architects and designers to develop complex systems. The Design Framework accomplishes this mission by capturing the design rationales in the design process and by providing a mechanism for using related to heterogeneous models. However, the Design Framework needs some adaptations to be used in the design process of high-speed production printers. The Design Framework has some difficult challenges to: • Represent very large projects that involve many multidisciplinary teams; • Create flexible views of the information; • Integrate seamlessly with analysis models. This report describes the result of a project to design and implement a set of ex-tensions to the Design Framework to address and solve these issues. These extensions are installed on top of the original Design Framework without modifying the core functionalities. These extensions were tested in some company scenarios to validate its functionality. The results of this project present an important step towards the validation of the Design Framework research and concept and its adoption in an industrial context.
