Abstract

During conceptual design, designers envision a breadth of solution principles to all the functional requirements of an artifact, and then combine them together into feasible concept variants. We conjecture that computational design tools could be developed to help designers navigate the design space in creating configurations from detailed specifications of function. In this research, a methodology is developed that extracts design knowledge from an online library of engineering artifacts in the form of grammar rules. From an initial implementation of 170 rules derived from 17 products, we demonstrate a computational process that builds new design configurations by borrowing concepts from how common functions are solved in related designs.
