Axiomatic Design in Large Systems: Complex Products, by Amro M. Farid, Nam P. Suh

By Amro M. Farid, Nam P. Suh

This booklet presents a synthesis of contemporary advancements in Axiomatic layout concept and its program in huge advanced structures. Introductory chapters offer concise educational fabrics for graduate scholars and new practitioners, featuring the basics of Axiomatic layout and bearing on its key techniques to these of model-based structures engineering. A mathematical exposition of layout axioms is usually provided.

The major physique of the e-book, which represents a centred therapy of numerous functions, is split into 3 components masking paintings on: advanced items; constructions; and production systems.

The publication exhibits how layout paintings in those parts can enjoy the medical and systematic underpinning supplied by means of Axiomatic layout, and in so doing successfully combines the cutting-edge in layout learn with perform. All contributions have been written by way of a world crew of best proponents of Axiomatic layout. The booklet concludes with a choice to motion motivating extra learn into the engineering layout of enormous advanced systems.

Example text

Although these two equations are equivalent, one focuses the designer on a system’s behavior, and the other focuses the designer’s attention to its allocated architecture. 15b depicts a closed-loop cyber-physical system. The SysML diagram depicts two components: a cyber component K1 and a physical component G1 . , transfer function) K1 , while the latter realizes the action G1 . An output feedback loop is introduced. The third column shows the overall closed-loop transfer function Gcp as a top level of abstraction or equivalently one level of abstraction down in terms of K1 and G1 .

In traditional top-down systems engineering and Axiomatic Design, the generation of the physical architecture proceeds as a synthesis activity in concert with the allocated architecture [3, 28] to be discussed in Sect. 3. In contrast, bottom-up design methodologies generate the physical architecture as an analytic activity presupposing the set of components and their associated technologies [28]. The development of the physical architecture is well supported in SysML [17, 18]. As shown in Fig. 3, this includes four diagrams that provide complementary views of the overall system structure at different levels of engineering design detail.

A single action G1 achieves this activity, and it is allocated to the physical system G1 . The distinction between the functional element G1 and the physical element G1 is critical. The third column shows the corresponding system behavior as a transfer function involving G1 . Meanwhile, the 1 An Engineering Systems Introduction to Axiomatic Design 39 fourth column shows the corresponding allocated architecture as an Axiomatic Design equation involving G1 . A single functional requirement is placed on the output Y, and the single resource G1 is designed to achieve it, and consequently, the Independence Axiom is fulfilled with an identity design matrix.
