In general, the structure dynamism assumes a change in some parameters of the system – temperature, pressure, speed, degree of mobility etc. In the simplest case, the system dynamisation at the expense of increasing the mobility of its components can be mentioned. Dynamisation enables to make the system controllable and adapted to changing operating conditions. It is possible to adjust the system components to the optimal mode of operation, to more precisely adjust its parameters to the changing requirements of the environment.
It is at this stage of the system transformation that you should check whether you can change the parameters of its components. The degree of dynamism of the component parameters is selected according to the specific operating conditions of the system component. If needed, rigid connections are replaced with mobile, flexible, fields are replaced with more dynamic ones. For instance, a permanent magnetic field can be replaced with a variable one created by a electric magnet.
To ensure the mobility of system parts, it is necessary to have resources for this, i.e. if a system consists of one object, it can be dynamised only by changing a parameter characterising the operation of the object as a whole.
Additional dynamisation possibilities arise when the system has several objects and their mobility relative to each other can be ensured. Introduction of such resources into the system should be ensured by performing the actions illustrated by lines 2.5.1 to 2.5.7. Thus, the system dynamisation, along the operational management provision, is the most important action in the hierarchy of transformations which directly prepares complete alignment of all parts of the system among themselves and the system itself with the environment.
We would like to remind you of the hierarchy of actions when transforming a system using the example of the regular door. To get a door, we can act as follows: separate a piece of it equal to the size of the door to be made from the wall (Segmentation) and make it thinner and lighter (Coordination of Components Shape, Dimensions, and Location). If we attach the door to the opening created with rigid connections, it would not open. Therefore, we need to perform dynamisation itself, i.e. to provide for fixing the door with hinges.
Then you need to provide for a method to easily open and close it (Controllability) and think about when the door should be open and when closed (Coordination of System Components Operation).
The first step of the Dynamisation line corresponds to the system option in which its parts are rigidly fixed to each other. The line can include the following steps:
transition to a system flexible in one direction,
Increase in the freedom of the system components,
transition to flexible connections,
transition to a system with parts connected with a field,
transition to a system with split parts.
To make each transition specific, the designer should collect information about different types of connections constantly. For instance, for the “flexible connection” transformation option, these can be connections with various degree of flexibility as well as with various degrees of freedom.
The attachment of the toothbrush head to its handle which was previously one-piece, rigid is replaced with a hinged one which allows for a slight bend.
The next option is two links which greatly increase mobility. The next step – an an accordion connection – is a corrugated plastic area increasing the connection flexibility. To prevent dirt from accumulating in the recesses of the accordion connection or links, the connection area is made one-piece, smooth but of a flexible, elastic material.
It is possible to imagine the toothbrush head separated physically from the handle but kept and controlled by a magnetic field as the final step of the line. This head will be most adaptable and mobile. At first glance, using a magnetic field to fix the toothbrush head seems unrealistic. However, such brushes are known, they provide a gentle effect on teeth. The same magnetic connection of the cleaning and control components is used in the window washing device on the upper floors of the building. The washer drives the handle in which a magnet is hidden on the inside of the glass, and the washing sponge with the same magnet moves on its outer surface of the glass.
