In this phase all the functionality of the application is described in functional detail, but not technically. Since functional design documents of different applications may contain lots of similar functionality, there is a request for reuse. At Quinity the reuse of certain functional aspects of functional design documents is done by describing functional design patterns. These patterns contain a detailed description of the isolated functionality, together with some additional contextual information. In our research we propose a general way of describing such a functional design pattern. In this functional design pattern definition language, we describe the structure of the document, the diagram types that can be used and even the elements of these diagrams. This language should unify the existing and new functional design patterns and makes the patterns clear and easy to use.
