Abstract

“Formalized design methodologies bring order to the design process without restraining the designer’s creativity. As different methodologies are evaluated, the usefulness of function-based methodologies becomes clear. In a functional design methodology, functions and constraints should be distinct. Taxonomy of elemental functions provides the framework for the design process as well as a common language to describe the components. Information about these components at the conceptual stage of design is very important and the Internet provides a valuable and readily accessible source of information that lacks an orderly presentation of this knowledge. Search terms and addresses linked to each component allow the designer to harness this knowledge in a dynamic manner, resulting in continuously up to date information as the contents of Internet evolve”--Abstract, page iii.
