Abstract

A compatibility matrix is an nxn matrix that is used to identify partial solutions that are compatible within a given choice set. This paper presents a four step methodology that is applied to find over 5451 valid hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) architecture configurations along with 91 requirement sets. The two domains are bridged using "linking selections" that allow developers of HEV architectures explore both new structural configurations and compatible system requirement parameters. The methodology aplies to any n-dimensional choice sets and is based on morphological matrix and DSM theory.

Keywords: concept selection, compatibility matrix, vehicle architecture
