Axiomatic design as support for collaborative decision-making in a DFM context

Abstract

Axiomatic Design (AD) is a comprehensive engineering design theory that provides a framework to support decision-making at any point of the designing process. Its underlying hypothesis is that there are two main principles that govern good design practice: the independence and the information axioms. In addition to the axioms, other AD basics are design domains, zigzag decomposition and hierarchies. The appropriate use of these basics leads to a new and effective way to perceive the existing interplay between the design goals and the proposed solutions, which is essential for good design decisions. This paper describes, through a worked example, how AD's Information Axiom can be used to support collaborative decision-making in a specific Design for Manufacturing problem.
