 Typical process modules are Requirements Engineering,​ Design, or Project Management. As process modules can be used to separate common from specific processes, a "​Design"​ process module could be used to contain the common elements in a "​Engine Design"​ and "​Transmission Design"​ process module. Typical process modules are Requirements Engineering,​ Design, or Project Management.
