Abstract

A mechatronic system is an intelligent product that is usually very complex and deserves to be characterized. The complexity comes from the number of integration of functions in a single product. Mechatronizability, which is the ability of the degree of mechatronics of a system, is a remarkable characteristic for designers to decide the level of complexity at the design stage of multifunctional products. The concern is therefore to estimate the multifunctional degree of a mechatronic product. After the description and analysis of a mechatronic system, two methodological approaches are proposed based on three metric models: the functional integration indicator which reflects the degree of collaboration of components in the realization of functions of a product. The functional complexity indicator which reflects the level of interpenetration between the elements belonging to the different domains existing in each of the product functions. The functional dematerialization indicator which measures the degree of integration of electronic "E", computer "I" and automatic "A" areas in a product. These indicators have been applied to a hydraulic pump. The designer will now have to know the mechatronizability of a product to decide on its degree of intelligence.
