Title

Structured functional representations for conceptual modeling and redesign derived from historical component design information

Abstract

"For students and designers that are unfamiliar with the formality of the functional modeling process (terms, structure, etc.), product and system modeling has proven to be a difficult task. This is due to the component-based methodologies that are normally utilized for the conceptual design stage. To assist these novice designers, a visual template tool that links the functional basis with the component taxonomy has been developed and is presented and discussed in this thesis"--Abstract, leaf iv.
