This paper describes a methodology for the analysis of product design decompositions. The technique is useful for developing an understanding of the "system engineering" needs which arise because of complex interactions between components of a design. This information can be used to define the product architecture and to organize the development teams. The method involves three steps: 1) decomposition of the system into elements, 2) documentation of the interactions between the elements, and 3… CONTINUE READING
