Abstract : Research in conceptual design methodologies based on bond graphs is reviewed. A brief summary or the bond-graph formalism is represented. Then each proposed design methodology in the design literature is analyzed with respect to the basic aim of the design problem and the bond graph notions that are used in the methodology. Further, the feasibility of using bond graphs to computationally support conceptual, parametric, and configuration design tasks is discussed.
