  • Otto, Kevin; Tang, Victor; Seering, Warren (PDMA Toolbook II, 2003-09-13)
    This chapter has two key themes: (1) a list of customer needs is interesting, but insufficient for many development decisions, (2) establishing a quantified, dollar value for each requirement is more helpful. To that end, ...
  • Olivier, Toubia; Duncan, Simester; John, Hauser (2002-02)
    We propose and test a new adaptive conjoint analysis method that draws on recent polyhedral “interior-point” developments in mathematical programming. The method is designed to offer accurate estimates after relatively few ...
  • Abrahamson, Shaun; Wallace, David; Senin, Nicola; Sferro, Peter (2000)
    This paper presents a service marketplace vision for enterprise-wide integrated design modeling. In this environment, expert participants and product development organizations are empowered to publish their geometric ...
  • Wallace, David; Yang, Elaine; Senin, Nicola (2001)
    The potential benefits of mathematically predicting and analyzing the integrated behavior of product concepts throughout the design synthesis cycle are widely recognized. Better up-front integrated design will not only ...
  • Repenning, Nelson (2000-11)
    There is now considerable controversy concerning the role that incremental change plays in the process of organizational transformation. Some scholars assert that incremental change is the primary source of resistance to ...
  • Hauser, John (2001-07)
    The explosion of information and information technology has led many firms to evolve a dispersed product development process with people and organizations spread throughout the world. To coordinate such dispersed processes ...

  • Salminen, Vesa; Pillai, Balan (2000)
    Newton’s second law as written appears simple, but how to use the law perceptually is a complex task. Most of the cases it is good for conceptual discussion or development. Normally the sign convention is not shown and ...
  • Agus, Sudjianto; Otto, Kevin (2001-09-09)
    Methods to determine acceptable architecture for multiple platforms supporting multiple brands must represent both platform cost saving commonization as well as revenue enhancing brand distinctions. Functional architecting ...
  • Hölttä, Katja; Tang, Victor; Seering, Warren (2003)
    A module is a structurally independent building block of a larger system with well-defined interfaces. A module is fairly loosely connected to the rest of the system allowing an independent development of the module as ...
  • Wernerfelt, Birger (2003-11-11)
    The paper is concerned with communication within a team of players trying to coordinate in response to information dispersed among them. The problem is nontrivial because they cannot communicate all information instantaneously, ...
  • Tang, Victor; Huang, Biao (2001)
    The purpose of this paper is to introduce patent litigation as a leading indicator of market growth. We model the intensity of patent litigation and the market growth for the personal computer and cellular phone market ...
  • Eppinger, Steven; Salminen, Vesa (2001-08-21)
    Development of complex products and large systems is a highly interactive social process involving hundreds of people designing thousands of interrelated components and making millions of coupled decisions. Nevertheless, ...

  • Takala, Roope; Hölttä, Katja (2001-07)
    Metrics for product concept evaluation and screening is a relatively unstudied topic of product development. Having a clearly documented set of metrics for concept screening decisions is a prerequisite for an educated and ...
  • Holmes, Maurice; Ronald, Campbell (2003)
    Product Development Processes have achieved a state of some maturity in recent years, but have focused primarily on structuring technical activities from the initiation of development to launch. We advocate major advances ...
  • Cho, Soo-Haeng; Eppinger, Steven (2001-09)
    This paper presents a product development process modeling and analysis technique using advanced simulation.The model computes the probability distribution of lead time in a resource-constrained project network where ...
  • Agrawal, Ajay; Henderson, Rebecca (2001-08-09)
    In this paper we explore the degree to which patents are representative of the magnitude, direction, and impact of the knowledge spilling out of the university by focusing on MIT, and in particular on the departments of ...
  • Repenning, Nelson (1999-10)
    The history of management practice is filled with innovations that failed to live up to the promise suggested by their early success. A paradox facing organization theory is that the failure of these innovations often ...
  • de Figueiredo, John; Kyle, Margaret (2000-07-14)
    In this paper, we examine the product life cycle in the desktop laser printer industry, from its inception in 1984 through 1996. During this time, the industry experienced a significant degree of innovation, as well as an ...
