Based on an approach which uses the description of functional interdependencies to resolve multi-criterial goal conflicts this paper addresses the challenge of formalizing the complex knowledge about functional interdependencies and making this knowledge broadly retrievable and applicable in engineering processes. Therefore a second approach, designed to foster transparency and consistency of engineering parameters, is used to integrate this knowledge and to make it applicable based on a concept of target value management and information flow.
