Deriving a component basis for computational functional synthesis Conference Paper uri icon


  • In this paper, we present our findings on the development of a design naming convention for electro-mechanical components. We have two main objectives. First, we aim to arrive at a standard set of names to derive uniformity and consistency in the representation of components and to improve communication of design information both in industry and in design education. Second, we strive to establish a framework for future computational tools that supports archival, search and reuse of component design knowledge.
