In the recent material research, much work aims at realization of “functional material” by changing structure and/or manufacturing process with nanotechnology. However, knowledge about the relationship among function, structure and manufacturing process is not well organized. So, designers have to consider a lot of things at same time. It is very helpful for them to support their design process by a computer system. In this article, we aim to develop a conceptual design supporting system for nano-material. Firstly, we investigate the specifications of such supporting system. And, we outline functionality of the system with some real examples.
