In this lecture, dive into the world of Functional Modeling, a versatile and potent problem-solving tool for engineers. Explore its application in tackling sudden deviations and chronic issues.
Functional modeling is probably the most powerful problem-solving tool available for us as engineers. The tool is applicable to both sudden, unpredictable deviations (AKA excursions) and for solving chronic problems. Functional modeling helps to learn and understand how a system operates, define the functional and problematic rank of all components, and solve problems by enhancing system functionality and eliminating problematic components. In this lecture, you will learn how to analyze your system functionality, create functional models and define the ways for your system improvements.
