Conceptual design of mechanisms was primary based on the designer. In order to get good design, designer has to design a concept that reach its criteria as well as acceptable cost. The reason behind this research was that experienced designers create complex mechanisms, in part, by creating abstract representations of simpler building blocks by combining various mechanisms. Every machine has their own mechanism which consists of functions and for every sub-function have their own conceptual design. In order to make designer easier in their designing of a machine, creating a database that can help designer to choose the most compatible and relevant with the machine. Designing a machine or product need a collaboration of many expertise from different disciplines. Other than that, designing manually will need a lot of time during concept evaluation. Based on a systematic investigation of hundreds of existing mechanisms and machines, firstly identified the set of functions and sub-functions for mechanism design that have in a machine or known as functional decomposition. After that concept generation will be done where the software will automatically generate a morphology chart of conceptual design base on the functions for mechanism design that already been identified in a machine early on. The designer can manually remove any conceptual designs that are not compatible or irrelevant with the design during the morphology chart. The software will then continue with concept combination to make a synthesis to generate a few concepts variant and lastly concept evaluation where all the concept variants will be automatically evaluate and rank. At the end of the process, the designer should get a design of machine with most compatible conceptual design. The limitation of this thesis is it only limited to only mechanisms.
