Abstract

Side-effects in a system are defined as effects which affect the intended working of the system. Unforeseen side effects are often blamed to be the cause of avoidable accidents in the history of engineering, the consequences of which are often disastrous. This research explains the development and evaluation of a computer-based tool to: synthesize alternative solution principles from a given sensor function, synthesize alternative conceptual structures for each solution principle and detect side-effects in these designs

Keywords: Sensor, side-effect, synthesis, solution principle, conceptual structure.

Design is ubiquitous; it pervades almost all spheres of life, and has been around as long as life has taken up the task of purposefully changing the world around it. Research in design and the emergence of a research community in this area has been relatively new, its development influenced by the multiple facets of design (human, artefact, process, organisation, and the micro- and macro economy by which design is shaped) and the associated diversification of the community into those focusing on...
