Analyzing and Modeling Interdisciplinary Product by Frank Neumann

By Frank Neumann

Frank Neumann makes a speciality of setting up a theoretical foundation that enables an outline of the interaction among person and collective procedures in product improvement. For this goal, he introduces the built-in descriptive version of data production because the first constituent of his examine framework. As a moment a part of the learn framework, an research and modeling process is proposed that captures some of the wisdom conversion actions defined by way of the built-in descriptive version of data production. for that reason, this learn framework is utilized to the research of data features of mechatronic product improvement (MPD). ultimately, the implications received from the former steps are used inside a layout aid approach that goals at federating the data and information assets inside the types released within the quite a few improvement actions of MPD.

Dimensional Analysis Beyond the Pi Theorem

Dimensional research and actual Similarity are good understood topics, and the final techniques of dynamical similarity are defined during this ebook. Our exposition is largely various from these to be had within the literature, even though it follows the overall rules often called Pi Theorem. there are numerous first-class books that you'll be able to check with; although, dimensional research is going past Pi theorem, that's sometimes called Buckingham’s Pi Theorem.

The second chapter aims at the clarification of the relevant terminologies associated with MPD, Mechatronics engineering science, and mechatronic systems. In addition, it clarifies the nature of cross-disciplinary interactions in MPD and Mechatronics engineering science. The third chapter focuses on the clarification of the concepts of data, information and knowledge as well as related processes. Next, it introduces selected taxonomies for the structuring of knowledge. Chapter 4 gives an overview on cognitive psychology and on various subfields of thinking and reasoning.

This controversy about substantial aspects of Mechatronics is reflected in the opinion of several authors who state that a generally accepted definition of Mechatronics does not currently exist (Buur 1990; Hewit 1993; cited in Wikander, Törngren, et al. 2001; VDI 2004; Bishop 2006; Felgen 2007; Vajna, Weber, et al. 2009). Moreover, Hewit (1993; cited in Wikander, Törngren, et al. 2001) argues that such a definition should not be desirable, as it would constrain the future development of this engineering field.

3). To address this issue, a system design phase has been proposed that aims at handling system level problems in early design stages (Eversheim, Niemeyer, et al. 2000; VDI 2004; Boucher and Houlihan 2008). During this system design phase, the solution concept of the product will be conceived based on the overall functionality divided up into sub-functions. 4) (Boucher and Houlihan 2008; Bellalouna 2009). In order to be able to fully understand the consequences of design changes, a consistent mapping between design requirements and components of the mechatronic system is required that enables the designer to (a) identify the design requirements affected by the changed component and (b) detect all items in the different disciplines involved in the fulfillment of these particular requirements.
