Platform formation method for non-uniform demand
Keywords and Phrases
"Companies are increasingly looking at ways to cost-effectively offer a wide variety of product variants desired by the customers. The product platform concept is seen as a viable solution to offer product variety. Some popular techniques of offering product variety through product latform formation are: scale based design and modular design. Effective methods are needed to identify proper values of the design parameters for the above mentioned techniques. This paper presents a methof utilizing the adaptive one-factor-at-a-time approach to select possible values of design variables so that individual product variant performances can be closely met with minimal variation in the values of design variables over the family of products"--Abstract, leaf iv.
