Abstract

The article presents a semi-automated approach to the synthesis of conceptual structures of technical systems.Technical systems are man-made and function exclusively on the basis of physical, chemical and biological laws (i.e. natural laws). Compared to the working principles and components, the advantage of the application of the physical laws is that the physical laws enable amore elementary level of presenting the technical system.On the basis of the effects of one or more physical laws, it is possible to build a range of diverse components and a number of working principles. Understanding the physical background of a technical system allows better structural design already in the conceptual phase. The focus of this paper is structural visualization of automatically generated conceptual technical systems

Keywords: Product development, Conceptual design, Synthesis, Physical law, Basic schema.

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...
