  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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, ...
  • 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, ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • de Weck, Olivier; Suh, Eun Suk (2002-10-03)
    Introduction to Platform Architecture in Products VW Golf 2 -Automotive Platforming Example:A Two-Level Optimization Approach 3 -Discussion
  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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, ...
  • 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 ...
  • Tang, Victor; Salminen, Vesa (2001-08)
    Global, dynamic, and competitive business environment has increased the complexity in product, service, operational processes and human side. Much engineering effort goes into reducing systems complexity. We argue that ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
