Product Functions - Lesson Summary
A Function of a Product is a statement of a clear reproducible relationship between the available input and the desired output of a product, independent of any form.
A Customer Need can be met with a function or it can be considered as a constraint in the product development process.
A Constraint is a clear statement of the criterion that must be satisfied by product and that requires a consideration of the entire product to determine the criterion value.
Functional Decomposition is a systematic process of transforming customer needs to a clear specification of the functional requirements of the product.
The functions that happen at the same time and that are caused by a critical path function are known as sub-functions.
The Functional Common Basis is a set of well-defined function verbs and flow nouns that can represent products across product domains.
The term ‘signal’ is often used to express the physical form in which the information is conveyed.
