Manually exploring the solution space for different variants of a product for a given set of requirements is ineffective regarding product development time and adaptation to dynamic customer requirements. Variant generation coupled to optimization algorithms offers possibilities to search the solution space in an automated way. This paper provides a framework to build a generative parametric design environment for functional assemblies by implementing analysis as well as synthesis methods in computer-aided tools. The procedure is presented using the example of a coffee machine.

Keywords: generative design, knowledge-based engineering (KBE), design optimisation, computer-aided design (CAD)
