A study product design of optimal solution for customer requirements

Shih-Chung LIAO


In this paper, the author uses an evaluative criteria model and their associated criteria status, product evaluative criteria software of results and product objective function of optimal values solution, along with product morphological analysis, to synthesize evaluative criteria and optimize product design values. This study focuses on how to use an evaluative criteria model’s imprecise market information by evaluative criteria design software; product mapping relationships between design parameters and customer requirements using product predicted value method; synthesizing design alternative by morphological analysis and plan; realizing the synthesis in multi criterion decision making (MCDM), using its searching software capacity to obtain the optimal solution.

Keywords. Multi criterion decision making (MCDM), Evaluative criteria model, Digital product design, Fuzzy theory, Products design.
