Is the grammar correct?

The computer has had a major impact on the way everyday tasks associated with design are accomplished.

Update:

Thank you all, it suddenly dawned on me why I was pusszled----I simply split 'tasks' and 'are accomplished' , actually they are closely related.

There are always good answers for stupid questions! :-))

    Right--and you split the verb because you got wordy instead of using a simple adjective. Aren't tasks associated with designing "design tasks" also? So try

    "The computer has had a major impact on how everyday design tasks are completed."

    But why be passive?

    "The computer has had a major impact on how we complete everyday design tasks."

    Simple and direct is always best.

    yeah but u could use a comma splice to make it flow more

    everyday tasks, associated with design, are accomplished.

    Yes, however "effect" might be preferable to "impact." No commas are necessary, and a comma splice, by the way, is an error that occurs when two independent clauses, sentences, have a comma between them.
