Setting Target Product Requirements: Decision Analytic Approach
This paper focuses on the second step of a three-step design concept selection procedure: (step 1) identification and structuring of customer needs and constraints, (step 2) setting target product requirements using decision analysis, and (step3) design concept selection using target product requirements as selection criteria. Particularly, this paper models and analyzes a decision problem of setting target product requirements by utilizing an influence diagram and a decision tree. Once the target product requirements are identified, engineers evaluate different design concepts in terms of how each concept satisfies the target product requirements. The next generation linear particle accelerator serves as an illustrative example.
