Generating knowledge about design is the goal of discipline-oriented, scientific research of the design science community. Theoretical research into engineering design has grown into field of a significant complexity. Orientation in the “jungle” of discipline-oriented research causes problems not only to new researchers but also to specialized experts due to high segmentation and multi disciplinary aspects of the matter. There have been numerous attempts to systematize the field in order to enable further research directions. An alternative approach would be to reconsider the complexity from a broader aspect. The paper gives a brief description of the current situation in the design community, and advocates for a new approach by introducing a need for comprehensive design policy. The policy of design research community has not yet been outlined. This article proposes a systems description of design policy and the process of generation and implementation.
