Incorporating Stakeholder Perspectives into Collaborative Product Design
Collaborative product design is a multiple criteria group decision making process bringing different and often controversial points of view together to create a solution among stakeholders. Collaborative design possesses more perspectives than any single person possesses because stakeholders have different perspectives. This work is based on new decision approach that includes creating shared understanding among various stakeholders, contextualizing design criteria and perspectives, and creating a multiple perspective and multiple criteria decision approach, our initial effort has focused on incorporating perspectives into design process. We then provide the approach to find the optimal design decisions for consideration of stakeholders’ perspectives. By analyzing the relationships between stakeholders’ perspectives and preferences of design criteria, multi-criteria decision making approach considering the stakeholders’ perspectives can be used to monitor and control the collaborative design process.
