The Functional Synthesis model is based on a novel representation of a set of generic mechanical device building blocks that can be combined to automatically generate an exhaustive set of technical solutions to a given mechanical function, at the topological, spatial as well as physical levels of abstraction. The model has been integrated into FuncSION (Functional Synthesizer of Input Ouput Networks) - computer-based software for functional synthesis that generates a comprehensive variety of mechanical design concepts as stimuli for ideation by designers.
