Paper Title:
Min-Max Partition Method of Product Modularization Based on Fuzzy Clustering
  Abstract

This paper presents a new method of product module partition based on the fuzzy clustering analysis. This method demonstrates the relevant definitions and calculation methods of the initial partition, min-max partition, submodule relevancy and module aggregation etc., and establishes the incidence matrix to respectively carry out the initial partition for the products and calculation of min-max partition according to various incidence relations between parts and components. Taking the submodule as computing unit in each module set, this paper carries out the fuzzy cluster analysis to obtain the module partition results of the products, and finally demonstrates the rationality and effectiveness of this method by taking the example of the working units of the wheel loaders.
