Axiomatic design

Axiomatic design is a systems design methodology using matrix methods to systematically analyze the transformation of customer needs into functional requirements, design parameters, and process variables. The method gets its name from its use of design principles or design Axioms (i.e., given without proof) governing the analysis and decision making process in developing high quality product or system designs. Axiomatic design is considered to be a design method that addresses fundamental issues in Taguchi methods.

The methodology was developed by Dr. Suh Nam Pyo at MIT, Department of Mechanical Engineering. A series of academic conferences have been held to present current developments of the methodology. The most recent International Conference on Axiomatic Design (ICAD) was held June 13-16, 2006 in Florence, Italy
