Abstract

Engineering change management is a research field in which the goal is to deal with modifications of products and systems. Methods and tools are set up to predict more efficiently the propagation of changes or to assess the consequences of these changes. This paper addresses the fundamental research question of dependency identification in a product. We propose an approach based on the use of specialised support tools and knowledge to map the dependency links among components or parameters of a product. These dependencies are expressed quantitatively, qualitatively or as a polynomial function. The general approach is here applied to a geometric 2D model of a bicycle. The analysis of the obtained dependency graph gives insights to designers for modification of existing products or for creation of new robust products.
