Abstract

Conceptual design has a decisive impact on the product development time, cost and success. This paper presents a new conceptual design method for achieving rapid and effective mapping from product design specification (PDS) to concept design. This method can guide the creation of reasonable mapping among the PDS, behaviour parameters and structure parameters and to evaluate the rationality of performance parameters and structure parameters to confirm a reasonable conceptual design scheme. In this method, we establish a PDS-behaviour-structure conceptual design model to support the conceptual design of multi-disciplinary-oriented complex product system (CoPS) and develop a vector-based mapping tool in this method to support the rapid mapping, and demonstrate its feasibility and effectiveness by a case study. This method is not only supportive to realise the automation of a conceptual design process but also helpful to evaluate the conceptual design in the field of engineering design.
