Conceptual design phase Is partially supported by product Iifecycie management/computer-aided design (PLM/CAD) systems causing discontinuity of the design Information flow: customer needs -functional requirements -key characteristics -design parameters (DPs) -geometric DPs. Aiming to address this Issue, It is proposed a knowledge-based approach is proposed to Integrate quality function deployment, failure mode and effects analysis, and axiomatic design Into a commercial PLM/CAD system. A case
