The link between function and interface corresponds to the definition that the function links two or more interfaces. The third link between function and component corresponds to the component is a technical solution of the function. These links are instantiate as shown in Figure 2. 3.

In the mechanical industries, designers use numerous standard components to ensure the functions of mechanisms. Designers do not design the standard components, they only know their intrinsic characteristics (i.e. thread of a screw, clearances of a ball bearing) and the surfaces, which are used to mount the standard component (helix of a screw, cylindrical surface of the inner ring of a ball bearing).
