Objective-oriented product realization: Fundament for a scientific formalism for product realization

Motte, Damien LU (2004)
Abstract
The need for a scientific formalism for product realization is the translation of a need onto a product which is developed right in time, at the right costs, and fulfills the specifications set out for the product. To achieve this, most existing methods focus on the customer, or on a key technology as the backbone of product development. In this paper, we claim that efforts must be directed towards the development of a formalism that considers the objectives and constraints of all the stakeholders that are touched by the product development process. In this way, we shall reach the goals of developing the “right” product. This essay presents this objective-oriented product realization. Then the product development organization that seems...

The need for a scientific formalism for product realization is the translation of a need onto a product which is developed right in time, at the right costs, and fulfills the specifications set out for the product. To achieve this, most existing methods focus on the customer, or on a key technology as the backbone of product development. In this paper, we claim that efforts must be directed towards the development of a formalism that considers the objectives and constraints of all the stakeholders that are touched by the product development process. In this way, we shall reach the goals of developing the “right” product. This essay presents this objective-oriented product realization. Then the product development organization that seems the most adequate to support our objective-oriented product realization is discussed. Finally, the implications of this formalism on the design process, which is the core activity of product realization, are developed. An in-depth study of the design activity is needed, in order to develop tools that will support the application of the formalism at all decision levels. (Less)
