scenario-based design

[sə¦ner·ē·ō ‚bāst di′zīn]
(systems engineering)
A family of techniques in which the use of a future system is concretely described at an early point in the development process, and narrative descriptions of the envisage usage episodes are then employed in a variety of ways to guide the development of the system.
