Across the product lifecycle, there has been a notorious lack of support to the conceptual stage, where the functional architecture (and sometimes the physical architecture) is decided. The conceptual stage succeeds the transformation of customer needs into product functions and use cases, and precedes the design of these functions across the engineering disciplines (for example mechanical, electrical, software, etc.
