In a book titled "Airplane Design" by Jan Roskam, why has he divided the complete design cycle in Class 1 and Class 2 methods, where Class 1 involves fewer calculations (data-based estimation) while class 2 includes more calculations (analytical formulas)?

I mean, can we just combine those two methods as we have to anyways iterate to reach optimal design point?
