This paper proposed formal descriptions of base vector, feature vector and matching function in the component semantic matching. The query input is discussed which is converted into the function descriptors of solving the query input. Components functions descripted by function edit distance model are illustrated in knowledge base. By providing semantic matching in this way, users' intention can be accurately grasped, their design ideas can be inspired, and innovative design can be supported.
