    • Patterns of Product Development Interactions 

      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, ...
    • Product Development Process Modeling Using Advanced Simulation 

      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 ...
    • Modularization to Support Multiple Brand Platforms 

      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 ...
    • The Virtual Customer 

      Hauser, John; Dahan, Ely (2001-12)
      Communication and information technologies are adding new capabilities for rapid and inexpensive customer input to all stages of the product development (PD) process. In this article we review six web-based methods of ...
    • Application and Test of Web-based Adaptive Polyhedral Conjoint Analysis 

      Dahan, Ely; Hauser, John; Simester, Duncan; Toubia, Olivier (2002-01)
      In response to the need for more rapid and iterative feedback on customer preferences, researchers are developing new web-based conjoint analysis methods that adapt the design of conjoint questions based on a respondent’s ...
    • Fast Polyhedral Adaptive Conjoint Estimation 

      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 ...
    • Transferring, Translating and Transforming: An Integrative Framework 

      Carlile, Paul (2002-03-10)
      Organizations must establish processes for managing knowledge across boundaries because of the specialized and task-dependent forms of knowledge required to deliver products and services. To address this challenge an ...

      Introduction to Platform Architecture in Products VW Golf 2 -Automotive Platforming Example:A Two-Level Optimization Approach 3 -Discussion
    • Product Development Processes, Three Vectors Of Improvement 

      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 ...
    • Modularizing Product Architectures Using Dendrograms 

      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 ...
    • Establishing Quantitative Economic Value for Features and Functionality of New Products and New Services (CHAPTER N) 

      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, ...
    • Organizational Languages 

      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, ...
    • Architecting and Innovating 

      Campbell, Ronald B. Jr. (2004-04-14)
      Innovating is essential to sustained industrial growth and profitability. But experience amply demonstrates how difficult innovation is, especially for large companies. The synthesis of valued offerings by aligning customer ...
    • Complex System Classification 

      Magee, Christopher; de Weck, Olivier (International Council On Systems Engineering (INCOSE), 2004-07-24)
      The use of terms such as “Engineering Systems”, “System of systems” and others have been coming into greater use over the past decade to denote systems of importance but with implied higher complexity than for the term ...
