A modelling approach is described, that is generally applicable for organizational, technical and information system design. The basic element of the approach is a so called 'objective'. An objective is defined as a structured set of functions around a transformation function. The set provides a goal keeping environment for any transformation process. Combined with a well defined zooming mechanism the design can focus in from global view to any detail level.

It is shown that the approach is a common basis for concurrent design of organization, equipment and information. To make the approach concrete, the design process of a new container terminal is used as a global example.
