Study of FPBS Model for Conceptual Design of Mechanical Product


Article Preview

A process model FPBS for conceptual design is put forward. The function and behavior etc about the model are defined and analyzed, and the expressions are analyzed too. The relationships of elements, the application of model are discussed and analyzed. The model can be effective used to guide conceptual design and applied to construct computer aided conceptual design system.
