This article presents a new methodology that enables designers to include in simulations not only the physics aspects of artifact behavior, but also human actions. The motivation for this research came from the fact that none of the conventional approaches to engineering simulations includes manipulative control of products by users as foreseen...

We introduce a methodology for modelling and simulating fully virtual human-artefact systems, aiming to resolve two issues in virtual prototyping: (i) integration of distinct modelling and simulation approaches, and (ii) extending the deployability of simulations towards conceptual design. We are going to offer designers a new way of...

The approach described in this paper aims to offer designers a new way to investigate use processes of products by integrating scenarios of expected user behaviour with simulations of physical artefact behaviour. Use is considered a key process in the life cycle of a product, being the phase in which an instance of a product is put into service...

Conventionally, simulation of product behaviour is employed as a pre-realization type of assessment at the end of the design process, making only late feedback for improvement possible. Enabling the start of optimization in the conceptualization is expected to have significant influence on design efficiency. However, the available information at...

when products are being designed, especially in conceptual design where there is a multitude of options for the designer. This paper presents a methodology to generate resource-integrated models unifying representations of the product, the user and the environment based on nucleus modelling, which is presented in Part 1 of this paper, according...

the function-behavior representation language FBRL was originally devised for modeling and knowledge management of intended product behavior. This paper explores its potential for application to other-than-intended behavior in a use context, introducing consideration of the user and the environment. We found that slightly adapted building blocks...

If conceptual modeling and simulation of consumer durables could include consideration of use processes, designers could more successfully anticipate the interaction ofproducts with users in a use environment. This is the basic idea behind our research into computer-aided modeling and forecasting product-use processes. This survey investigates...

To increase the effectiveness of computer support in development and production of durable industrial products (artifacts), three problems still need to be solved: (a) integration ofaspect models used in artifact development, (b) integration of the aspect models used in process planning andprocess representations, (c) integration of(a) and (b)....
