The design of a manufacturing system involves multiple technical disciplines consisting primarily of mechanical, electrical, instrumentation, and control engineers. A function modeling methodology in conceptual design ensures that the various disciplines work toward a common design intent. A systematic approach in efficiently capturing the design intent promotes interdisciplinary communication, clarity, and early systematic determination of a functional design that fulfills customer needs. This paper proposes a model-based systems engineering approach that combines the advantages of axiomatic design, design structure matrix, and integrated function modeling.
