PROPERTIES AND QUALITY OF TECHNICAL SYSTEMS
Any technical product - technical object system (TS) and its life cycle processes are needed to fulfil many requirements, which can be stated, generally implied or obligatory. This paper presents a systematic and user friendly knowledge support for the engineering design of TS to achieve more transparent relations among these requirements, relevant TS properties/quality characteristics, and the required TS life-cycle quality, cost and time. The final aim is to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the TS operational and other TS life-cycle processes. The principles of knowledge support, which has proved its usefulness in many university and industrial engineering design projects, are systematically derived and explained.
