The BEAM Glossary says:


  • A term used when referring to:
    • Some technical aspect of a larger process.
    • A kinematic chain having at least one fixed link.
    • A combination of ridged parts designed and connected together in such a way that when force is applied to one or more of those parts, and sometimes others, are caused move and thereby perform a desired function.

NOTE: Although a mechanism is usually only a piece of a larger process or mechanical device, on occasions an entire machine will be referred to as a reference mechanism.
