Abstract

In the context of the Usage Coverage Model of a product-service, design parameters are linked to expected usages that must be covered. This paper implements a physics-based model to provide a performance prediction for each usage context that also depends on user skills. The physics describing the behavior and performances of a jigsaw is established. Simulating the usage coverage is not trivial for two reasons: presence of circular references in physical relations and need to deal with usage domains. Then, we use CSP techniques to simulate the performances and the part of usage covered.

Keywords: constraint programming, usage, design under uncertainty, coverage metrics
