Project Description:

This interdisciplinary project will incorporate the disciplines of ____________________ . However the project is specifically housed within the Hope College Department of __________________.

Functional diagrams represent a form-independent description of a technical system. Work is underway to develop a functional basis for engineering design where technical system function is described in verb-object (function-flow) format. The work will focus on the development of a method of constructing component function maps to convey the functional structure of a technical system. An additional area of work will address the means to incorporate qualitative design requirements in the function structure development process.
