A Process for Concept Configuration and Evaluation in Modular Product Family Planning

Project status: Complete

Thrust area: New Design Paradigms and Processes

Research team: Nicholas Polys

A systematic support for product development teams to configure and evaluate modular product families and platforms has been created. Members will benefit from a more explicit understanding of modular product family planning, knowledge management systems that can support ways of capturing and maintaining modular product family information, and guidelines and tools for designing and implementing comprehensive performance-based product platform assessment approaches.
