  • indicator Design for passenger car using fuzzy Axiomatic Design principles
    Expert Systems With Applications, 2010
    Co-Authors: Selcuk Cebi, Cengiz Kahraman

    Abstract:

    The performance of a human-machine system is related to interaction between human and machine. The main aim of the indicators used in a human machine system is to satisfy the interaction. This paper focuses on the Design of indicator panel for passenger cars based on the Axiomatic Design principles. In this study, Axiomatic Design principles proposed by Suh are used under fuzzy environment. Both independence axiom and information axiom are utilized. The independence axiom is used for the following goals; (1) obtaining a Design map, (2) determining Design parameters and their importance, and (3) calculating the functional independency of the proposed Design. In the scope of this paper, to calculate the functional independence, new formulas are presented under fuzzy environment differing from classical Axiomatic Design principles. Then, information axiom is used to determine the best Design among the Designs that satisfy independence axiom and put forward to suitable Design characteristics. Furthermore the importances of functional requirements for the indicator panel Design are determined by using fuzzy analytic hierarchy process in the presented study.

  • Determining Design Characteristics of Automobile Seats Based On Fuzzy Axiomatic Design Principles
    International Journal of Computational Intelligence Systems, 2010
    Co-Authors: Selcuk Cebi, Cengiz Kahraman

    Abstract:

    The performance of a product depends on if it is created in terms of expected functional requirements. A product is Designed to satisfy some certain tasks. In this study, the Design of an automobile seat is handled. Automobile seat Design procedure is based on experience and trial-and-error method, rather than structured and scientific methods. Axiomatic Design is a Design theory providing a systematic approach to engineering Design. We propose a new product development algorithm based on Axiomatic Design principles. The independence axiom of Axiomatic Design is extended to fuzzy environment. Then, an automobile seat Design process is taken into consideration by the proposed algorithm. The Design characteristics of an automobile seat and their priorities are determined. Moreover, the Design dimensions of an automobile seat are defined for Turkish drivers.

  • extension of Axiomatic Design principles under fuzzy environment
    Expert Systems With Applications, 2010
    Co-Authors: Selcuk Cebi, Cengiz Kahraman

    Abstract:

    Axiomatic Design gives a Design map to Designers in order to establish a scientific basis, which improves Design activities. In the classical Axiomatic Design (AD) approach, the relationships between functional requirements (FRs) and Design parameters (DPs) are defined in crisp numbers notably ”0” or ”1”. This definition restricts relevant Designers due to the incomplete information or uncertainty in various circumstances. This study debates the adaptation of the current AD principles into fuzzy sets theory. Those transformations are expressed by the developed formulas to prove the independence degree of the Design in quantitative manner. A numerical study illustrates the logic of the proposed ideas clearly. Consequently, the proposed methodology provides a genuine link to explain the correspondences among FRs and DPs in linguistic form.

  • improving the requirements process in Axiomatic Design theory
    Cirp Annals-manufacturing Technology, 2013
    Co-Authors: Mary Kathryn Thompson

    Abstract:

    Abstract This paper introduces a model to integrate the traditional requirements process into Axiomatic Design Theory and proposes a method to structure the requirements process. The method includes a requirements classification system to ensure that all requirements information can be included in the Axiomatic Design process, a stakeholder classification system to reduce the chances of excluding one or more key stakeholders, and a table to visualize the mapping between the stakeholders and their requirements.

  • a classification of procedural errors in the definition of functional requirements in Axiomatic Design theory
    7th International Conference on Axiomatic Design (ICAD 2013), 2013
    Co-Authors: Mary Kathryn Thompson

    Abstract:

    The definition of functional requirements is one of the most critical and difficult steps in the Axiomatic Design process. This paper presents five classes of procedural errors made by both novice and expert Designers during the definition of functional requirements in Axiomatic Design Theory. Each category is described in detail, the linguistic markers for the errors are identified, examples from the literature are provided, and strategies for avoiding these errors are suggested. The implications of these errors for Design practitioners, educators, and researchers are considered. The paper ends with a discussion about the nature of requirements and future requirements research topics in Axiomatic Design Theory.

  • applying Axiomatic Design to the educational process
    International Conference on Auditory Display, 2009
    Co-Authors: Mary Kathryn Thompson, Benjamin C Thomas, Jonathan B Hopkins

    Abstract:

    Axiomatic Design theory (AD) was originally developed to form a scientific basis for mechanical Design. This paper takes an in-depth look at Axiomatic Design theory as a scientific basis for the Design of educational courses and curricula. The implications of the first and second axioms for education are discussed and issues associated with coupling, physical integration, repetition, redundancy, complexity, robustness, and flexibility are addressed.
