At first glance, just with several good analysis methods and an exhaustive search of the candidate solutions space with Gödel's numbering, an optimal solution can be found for any structural problem. But the computational cost of this ``design method'' would be intractable in a formal sense (NP-completeness theory). Furthermore, it can be the case that no solution exists. So, it is worth of consideration a design theory as a different one that an analysis theory. The conference includes: 1. The differences between Analysis & Design 2. Two key examples of the Design Theory 3. A Short Tour into the Design Theory 4. Issues ``to do'' in future researchs
