This paper considers the implications of introducing the computational method for technical process synthesis founded on the Theory of Technical Systems as an addition to the current Computational Design Synthesis (CDS) methods and tools. A computational method containing formal model of technical process based on labelled multidigraph and formal model of technical process synthesis that is based on labelled multidigraph graph-grammar transformations will be presented. The result of applying transformation to the multigraph is generation of variants showing how technical process could be accomplished.
