Side-effects in a system are defined as effects which affect the intended working of the system. Unforeseen side effects are often blamed to be the cause of avoidable accidents in the history of engineering, the consequences of which are often disastrous. This research explains the development and evaluation of a computer-based tool to: synthesize alternative solution principles from a given sensor function, synthesize alternative conceptual structures for each solution principle and detect side-effects in these designs

Keywords: Sensor, side-effect, synthesis, solution principle, conceptual structure.
