  author={Robert B. Stone and K. L. Wood and Richard H. Crawford},
cularly when defining product architecture. Several systematic methods guide the development of functional models and produce graphical representations such as function structures . However, functional modeling is rarely considered a quantitative activity. In this paper we introduce the concept of a quantitativefunctional model—a vector representation of a product in which the number of distinct sub-functions determine the dimension of the vector and the customer need rankings of each sub… CONTINUE READING
