The integrated function modelling framework is used for functional analysis of technical moderate complex systems, but requires specific adaptation in modelling to visualize the behaviour of specific technical systems. We have applied the integrated function modelling framework on a usual technical system within a usual environment of a design project and documented the steps of adaptation. Two different applications had been made with two different ways of adapting the method. A Comparison of the results with other existing applications of the integrated function modelling framework indicates that the application of the method differs for various process types. Three different process types have been identified for the provided method.
