In this paper, two approaches for computing the topological information content of function models in mechanical engineering design are developed and compared. Previously a metric for computing information content of functions and flows within function models was proposed. Here this metric is adapted to compute the information contained in the resulting(More)
A metric for computing information content of function models in mechanical engineering design is proposed. Function models are graph-based representations used to describe the functionality of engineered artifacts, where the nodes are function verbs and the edges are the objects of action, respectively. The Functional Basis, a controlled vocabulary of(More)
