Parts functionality studies are guides or articles that explore the way different elements can be used to achieve a given function. In particular they compare the use of brick built alternatives to POOPs and other highly specialized pieces.

Parts are designed to fulfill a function whether it be structural (ie. bricks and plates, connectors) , decorative (ie. colored, patterned, logged or with grill) or mechanical (ie. steering, differential, gear trains).
