I don't fullly agree. Games designers rarely are a part of the software design process. They are the customer of the project, not the Technical Lead. Games are not all software. Baord and card games exist for example.

Being a games designer means that you understand how to design a game regardless of the form it takes physically.

Perhaps Project Management fits better into being a Producer.

My wife is an IT project manager, and her duties to seem to be very similar to that of a Producer at a game company.

But she also does Design Documents for software.

That seems to be a better fit.

Technical design documents constructed from the customer requirements (i.e Games Designer in our case)?

I believe you may be right. She doesn't have to design anything that the user will LIKE DOING. She just has to make sure that the software and interface is functional and does what it's supposed to do.
