Conceptual Design capture

    This paper presents a basic theory of mechanical systems design, the so-called domain theory. By a strict distinction between structural characteristics and behavioural properties, each domain becomes a strong view for synthesis of the artefact. The functional reasoning in each domain and between the domains seems to be ruled by the Function/Means-Law (Hubka's law). Different enhancing viewpoints of the Function/Means-Law are presented.
