Abstract

In recent years the research concerning the representation of product functions has intensified again. Current studies exhibit a growing interest of design engineers to apply such representations in their daily practice. Simultaneously, a growing interest concerning graph-based methods for the digital representation of product models and the product logic in general can be observed. This paper seeks to combine these two research directions and to present a promising attempt to allow a sensible representation of product functions within a digital engineering framework based on graph based design languages. The main motivation for this research is to look for powerful methods and tools to overcome the limitations which result from the multitude of software tools along the product life cycle and heterogeneous data formats which are present in industrial companies and hinder integrated product development. This research seeks to expand the applicability of graph-based design languages into the domain of product functions. A rather simple product - a multicopter - is used as a basis for explanation and discussion.
