Scalable product family design: case study of axial piston pumps
"Many companies are trying to generate product variants through platforming to cater to diverse customer needs in a cost effective fashion. Although product platforming may provide a cost effective solution, platforming may also render undesirable degradation in the individual product variant performance. Creating product variants based on multiple platforms instead of a single platform can be adopted as a strategy to reduce this performance degradation. In this paper, a methodology is proposed to determine the optimal number of scalable platforms needed for creating known product variants by considering the trade off between cost effectiveness and performance degradation"--Abstract, page iv.
