N2 - The computation of the information content of decoupled designs implies the use of conditional probability, because the existing design parameters must be adjusted in a certain order, as to fulfil all the existing functional requirements at the first trial. Nevertheless, the computation of the information content is hard to perform when the system range of the functional requirements is denoted by probability density functions. In their works, Suh and Park proposed a graphical method to compute the information content of 2-FR, 2-DP decoupled designs when the probability density functions of the FRs are uniform. This paper introduces an extension to the Suh and Park's previous findings. It presents a method that uses analytical and descriptive geometry techniques to compute the information content of 3-FR, 3-DP decoupled designs with uniform probability density distributions of their FRs, and an illustrative example is presented as well.
