This paper introduces a method to perform systematic diagnosis of function integrity. The proposed method advances the Integrated Function Modelling framework to extend its application to risk identification and documentation tasks. By analyzing the system model of interdisciplinary designs, this method guides the designer to explore function vulnerability by systematic decoupling of inherent design entities. Thereby it provides unique opportunities for failure mode identification in complex, interdisciplinary systems. The motivation for this method is ensuring system function integrity.
