The article discusses dynamic aspects in function structures as a result of the simulated product behavior in time. In this case product behavior is separated into different product states. We show how the the product behavior can be simulated within a single state and how views on function structures are changing by considering multiple states. In addition to that, solution finding processes of effective solutions as part of conceptual design can be supported for innovative and creative design.
