Abstract

This study investigates a computer support system applying functional modeling techniques for the conceptual design phase of engineering systems. This paper describes a systematic representa, tion of design information, where a design is represented by the four models of goal, function-goal, function-structure, and structure in a systematic and organized form. A graphical interface system is developed to support the efficient representation of the design information. The design information of a waste process plant is expressed to demonstrate the representation capability of the design models.
