Intelligent Mapping of Semi-Structured Customer Needs for Web-Based Product Customization


Article Preview

This paper proposes an approach of mapping semi-structured customer needs (SCN) into precise functional requirements (PFR) for Web-based product customization by integrating fuzzy set theory. The mapping relationship between SCN and PFR is discussed. Then a framework of the SCN mapping is constructed; and the methodology of implementation is presented in detail. Finally, an example of Web-based customization of pedal motorcycles is employed to illustrate the proposed approach.
