Engineers construct, finally, models that represent the structure and sub functions of artefacts. They managed to model the structure but the incorporation of functional decomposition is less successful.

These facts show that philosophy can learn from engineering, and the project takes up this promise. It reviews engineering models of functional decomposition and arrives at an account that integrates structural and functional descriptions of artefacts, of their components and of the processes within artefacts.

This account is constructed with existing function theories and part-whole theories, logical analyses of artefacts and their capacities, and is guided by the results of the mentioned review. This integrated structure-function account furthers our understanding of artefacts and their functions, is used for analysing the novel functional part-whole relation, and again advances our understanding of the relation between structural and intentional descriptions.
It, moreover, helps engineers with their challenge of modelling functional decomposition.
Functional Decomposition in Philosophy and Engineering. Summary The overall aim of the project is to analyse the decomposition of functions of technical artefacts into subfunctions of their components and processes. Output Book or monography M. Ecole Centrale Paris, abstract: pp.
