Axiomatic Design of a Smart Inlet Control Valve for Air Brake Compressors 2005-01-3612

Axiomatic Design is a principal based method to help reduce or eliminate conceptual vulnerabilities early in the design process by clearly linking function requirements to design parameters creating a hierarchy of Design Matrices which are then evaluated relative to two axioms.
This paper illustrates the use of Axiomatic Design methods to design a Smart Inlet Control Valve for heavy-duty air brake compressors operating with highly turbocharged inlet air.
The example application shows how Axiomatic Design links with two other Product Development tools - Failure Modes and Effects Analysis and Taguchi methods.
