Study on Energy-Saving Product Concept Design Based on TRIZ and Function Analysis
The energy consumption and environmental impacts of a product are largely determined during concept design. It is the core for energy saving product development to integrate energy saving into product concept design process. In this paper, a framework for energy-saving product concept design based on TRIZ/function analysis is proposed, the energy flow chart is built based on the analysis of product function. By eliminating the harmful function associated with energy and environment, resolving the conflict parameter and attributes of components in energy and function, the new product that satisfy user needs while minimizing energy consumption is obtained. A case study is also presented to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed design framework.
