Behaviour Based Engineering Design (MECE 425) Course Details

Course Name: Behaviour Based Engineering Design
Code: MECE 425
Pre-requisite Course(s): None
Objective: This course aims to introduce the basic theory and methodology of the upstream engineering design activity (conceptual design) that is the initial and most abstract stage of the design process. Special emphasize will be given to behavioural modeling tools and techniques for the upstream design yielding behaviour-based design of engineering systems.
Content: Introduction to engineering design theory and methodology, modeling in design, Function-behaviour-structure model for design, behaviour-based modeling. Review of sets, relations and functions. Graph theory. Discrete-event system modeling. Petri Nets. Traditional design approaches. Recent trends in engineering design. Behaviour-based design applications. Implementation on bio-inspired design. Case studies.
