Design by analogy demonstrates itself as a powerful, yet very cognitively challenging approach for innovative design. Highly effective computational tools with well-structured repositories of analogues are needed to support this cognitively difficult task and to further spur innovation building effectively on past solutions. The majority of tools have focused on linguistic computational tools. This chapter seeks to support the development of highly effective computational tools that employ a functional modeling basis.
