Abstract

Automated synthesis of mechanical designs is an important step towards the development of an intelligent CAD system. Research into methods for supporting conceptual design using automated synthesis has attracted much attention in the past decades. The research work presented here is on ten design synthesis processes of multiple state mechanical devices done by engineering designers. The ten design synthesis processes are video recorded. The video records are transcribed and coded for activities occurring in the synthesis processes, input to and output of the activities. This will be used to identify the outstanding issues to be used as a basis for developing a support system for automating the design synthesis of multiple state mechanical devices
