summary Design of a new artifact begins with incomplete knowledge about the final product and the design evolves as it progresses from the conceptual design stage to a moredetailed design. In this paper, an effort has been made to give a structural framework, through a set of generic definitions, to product specification, functionalrepresentation, artifact representation, artifact behavior and tolerance representation. A design synthesis process has been proposed for evolution of a product from theproduct specification. The proposed design synthesis method is a mapping from the functional requirements to artifacts, with multi-stage constrained optimization duringstages of design evolution. Provisions have been kept to augment and/or modify the product specification and domain knowledge during stages of development to guidethe design process. The effectiveness of the proposed design process has been illustrated with a simple design example based on a sample artifact library. An overalldesign scheme has been presented.
