Abstract

This paper establishes a concept for Product, Process, and Methodology (PPM) systematization to handle both structural complexity (often referred as hard complexity) and computational complexity (also referred as soft complexity) in product realization. A systematization methodology is proposed to handle both these complexities through a four-stage process: Planning, Systematization, Solution and Unification. Planning is the first stage where system specification is defined. Systematization is a systematic decomposition of the problem into a set of discrete sub-problems. There are three kindsof systematization that can be employed in product realization: Methodology systematization, Product systematization and Process systematization. During the Solution stage, a number of computational alternatives, solution strategies or topological options for handling soft complexity are obtained for each sub-problem, and the best solution is selected. Unification is an aggregation or a reconstruction of an overall product solution from various alternative solutions to the sub-problems. A branching and bounding methodology has been employed here first to branch the complex product and process into 'sub-domains' and 'loops' and later bound these loops back into sub-domains and then further bound those sub-domains back into an integrated product development system. The branching andbounding methodology provides the product development teams the ability torefine successively the 'goodness or fitness' of a baseline product concept as teams proceed from one nested loop to another. PPM systematization is a convenient way of organizing the process necessary for a new product realization or for developing future product upgrades. Copyright (C) 2001 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
