LST Based Function Modeling Based on for Mechanical Products


Article Preview

The efficiency of the modeling method is the decisive factor for the success of generated innovative solutions, while existing modeling methods are usually based on the assumptions that many prior knowledge/information about the design has been acquired. A novel modeling approach based on living system theory is proposed and its detailed implementation steps are given, which provides an easy operating, complete information representation, and general-purpose decomposition mode for the functional design of mechanical product. Finally, through the application in the design of automatic packaging mechanism, the feasibility and efficiency of the proposed method is verified.
