Title

Function-based design tools to streamline design for Six Sigma execution and address uncertainty during early engineering design

Keywords and Phrases

Functional modeling

Abstract

"The objective of the research presented in these two papers was to develop a set of function-based tools to aide the early design of engineering systems. The first paper proposes a function-based framework to streamline and augment the application of Design for Six Sigma to the design of systems...The second paper introduces the FUNdesign concept and outlines the sensitivity measures and knowledge storage process required to implement such a concept"--Abstract, page iv.
