This publication is made to support the conference paper "Usage of Free Sketches in MBSE", which was submitted at the First IEEE International Symposium on Systems Engineering (IEEE ISSE; Rome, September 29-30 2015) by MOESER. ALBERS and KÜMPEL. In the IEEE ISSE paper the authors define function-embodiment-synthesis (FES) and free sketches. Also the state of research concerning FES, free sketches and model-based systems engineering (MBSE) is given. A new approach is presented on how free sketches can be used to support a model-based FES. Finally the contribution of the new approach is highlighted and an outlook is given.
In the publication at hand the following example is derived step by step and shows how the new approach can be applied.
