On the identification of Product Structure Laws

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


    Based on the WDK-school's design theory we try to make a balance on product structuring with respect to functional and behavioural product synthesis, the structuring of a product into units, modules, and reusable products, and the definition of a product family, which might be configured into products without any additional design effort. Asustainable theoretical foundation with articulated laws is presented. The theoretical foundation has only had a limited impact on the recent years research contributions, but its importance is growing. The article contribute to a detailed language within the area of product structuring, which clarifies the imprecise use of terminology in industrial practise.
