TRIZ based Interface Conflict Resolving Strategies for Modular Product Architectures

  title={TRIZ based Interface Conflict Resolving Strategies for Modular Product Architectures},
  author={Wessel Willems Wits and Thomas H.J. Vaneker},
In product development, the chosen product architecture often possesses characteristics of both modular and integral design. Within a modular architecture, a Function-Behavior-Structure (FBS) model has been applied to describe modules and their interfaces. To resolve emerging interface conflicts, several strategies based on both modular and integral action have been formulated. The strategies encompass TRIZ methods, as they focus strongly on product innovation. The purpose of the presented… CONTINUE READING
