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 modern advancements in Axiomatic layout idea and its software in huge complicated platforms. Introductory chapters offer concise educational fabrics for graduate scholars and new practitioners, proposing the basics of Axiomatic layout and bearing on its key recommendations to these of model-based structures engineering. A mathematical exposition of layout axioms can be provided.

The major physique of the booklet, which represents a focused remedy of a number of purposes, is split into 3 elements masking paintings on: complicated items; structures; and production systems.

The booklet exhibits how layout paintings in those components can enjoy the clinical and systematic underpinning supplied by way of Axiomatic layout, and in so doing successfully combines the state-of-the-art in layout learn with perform. All contributions have been written via a global team of top proponents of Axiomatic layout. The booklet concludes with a decision to motion motivating additional examine into the engineering layout of enormous complicated systems.

Discrete Optimization in Architecture: Building Envelope

This booklet explores the super modular platforms that meet standards: they enable the production of structurally sound free-form constructions, and they're created from as few forms of modules as attainable. Divided into components, it offers Pipe-Z (PZ) and Truss-Z (TZ) structures. PZ is extra basic and varieties spatial mathematical knots by way of assembling one kind of unit (PZM).

In both models, it is important to distinguish the flow of power from the other types of operands. This is because the directionality of power flow does not fully coincide with the direction of dynamic causality [46]. , by their impedance) will impose the required current. The functional architecture domain also very much lends itself to mathematical description. From a static perspective, functional elements (at any given level of abstraction) can be organized into a directed graph and its associated adjacency matrix [47].

In many ways, it strongly resembles the functional architecture domain [53]. Each process is defined as a transitive verb stated in third person singular followed by its associated object/operand. Indeed, recent work on the Axiomatic Design of manufacturing systems (independent of the products that they produce) treats manufacturing processes as elements of the manufacturing system’s functional architecture domain [54–56]. Therefore, there is significant similarity in how the two domains are modeled in general as well as in SysML.

13 Synthesis paths in simultaneous hierarchical physical and functional decomposition also implies that Eq. 6 remains true and consequently the Independence Axiom can still be applied without change. The introduction of graph and set theory into the discussion now allows a formal understanding of how Axiomatic Design manages system complexity and multiple layers of abstraction. 13 shows Axiomatic Design’s dual hierarchy of the functional and physical architecture domains. It represents the full allocated architecture of the system and is generated along the depicted synthesis arrows by what Suh calls a “Zig-Zag” approach.
