Module and Product Family Formation Based on Improved Interpretive Structure Model

Abstract:

Article Preview

The module and product family formation are the important technologies for mass customization. This paper provides a novel method of establishing the module for mass customization so that we can construct the various product families for the individuation demand. This method can obtain the driven design way of demand through the VOC (Voice of customer) report and obtain the components through the functional and structural mapping .This method accounts for the specification flow between components rather than merely the relation and similarity of the components, represents the hierarchical relations and related design constraints of the product by a structural graph and helps designers to create various product for mass customization. The methodology also is illustrated via the case study of the product family design of forklift.
