Satisfying diverse customer needs leads to proliferation of product variants. It is imperative to model the coherence of functional, product and process varieties throughout the design chain. Based on a model-based systems engineering approach, this paper applies the Systems Modeling Language (SysML) to model design chain information. To support variety management decisions, the SysML-based information models are further implemented as a variety coding information system. A case study of… 
XII . INTEGRATING ANALYSIS INTO A WAREHOUSE DESIGN WORKFLOW
TLDR
This work applies model-based systems engineering (MBSE) methodologies to explore the possibility that analyses could be automatically generated on demand, given an appropriate specification of the particular system to be analyzed.

TLDR
This paper proposes a reconfiguration framework which considers data collected from the use phase in order to generate valid and optimized configurations with regard to stakeholders needs.
Dynamic platform modeling for concurrent product-production reconfiguration
TLDR
A dynamic platform modeling approach that supports concurrent product-production reconfiguration and can potentially reduce the risk of late and costly modifications that propagate from design to production is presented.
Maintaining consistency between system architecture and dynamic system models with SysML4Modelica
TLDR
This paper presents the advantages and challenges of modeling the dynamic behavior completely in SysML4Modelica followed by a transformation to Modelica, and proposes a "mixed-paradigm" approach in which different parts of the dynamic system behavior are modeled at different levels of abstraction with different formalisms.
Towards automated access to supply chain analyses
TLDR
This work applies model-based systems engineering (MBSE) methodologies to construct a SCOR®-compliant supply chain reference architecture using OMG SysMLTM and formulate reusable transformations and demonstrate the methodology to generate simulations of inventory models.
Process analytics formalism for decision guidance in sustainable manufacturing
TLDR
The SPAF syntax and formal semantics are presented, a sound and complete algorithm to translate SPAf models into formal mathematical programming models are provided, and the use of SPAFs through a manufacturing process example is illustrated.
Simulation model generation of discrete event logistics systems (DELS) using software design patterns
TLDR
This work extends current model-based systems engineering (MBSE) methodologies by introducing a new model to model transformation method based on object-oriented creational patterns from software design to provide automated access from a formal system model to multiple analysis tools.
Process configuration based on generative constraint satisfaction problem
TLDR
The process configuration task is confirmed based on the analysis of characteristics of process planning and an algorithm based on backtracking algorithm is introduced to complete the process configuration.
Knowledge flow in engineering design: An ontological framework
TLDR
An ontological framework, purpose-function-working space-structure-behavior (PFWSB) for knowledge representation and knowledge flow based design process modeling is proposed and the results show that this framework can help designers capture the flow of knowledge in engineering design process more effectively.

Formalization of design chain management using environment-based design (EBD) theory
TLDR
This paper aims to develop a formal conceptual model for the design chain management from its informal definition by using the Environment-Based Design (EBD) theory and is called a wheel model since the model would evolve because of its internal conflicts.
