Abstract

Today's products are interdisciplinary and they include more than one technology such as electronics and
mechanics. Interactions between different disciplines during the design and manufacturing of these products
may cause conflicts due to discipline-based constraints. Dealing with these conflicts will effectively reduce
product cost, and increase the quality, and shorten the product lead-time.
In this research a product development system based on key characteristics of complex products have been
developed. It aims to achieve the integration of mechanical and electronics product design subject to a set of
given constraints. The system has been developed by using Delphi based environment integrated with a CAD
system. The system has been tested on a small walking robot. The results show that it can serve to detect
conflicts caused by constraints violation, and provides effective resolution of those conflicts that lead to
reductions in product development time and cost by supporting design teams.
