Abstract

Design principles capture the essence of design knowledge. They can aid in synthesizing and evaluating design concepts. Opportunities to incorporate the principles often go unattended, due to the absence of methodologies for the systematic application of the principles. This paper presents parameter analysis as a tool to create configurations incorporating design principles in general, and the principle of direct and short load transmission path in particular. It places a magnifying glass over a portion of the conceptual design process of a running tool for offshore oil field drilling application. The methodology presented in the paper will enable expert and novice designers to effectively incorporate design principles in their designs.

Keywords: parameter analysis, design principle, principle of direct and short transmission path, case study
