Title:
A Methodology to evaluate the structual Robustness of Produtct Concepts 
Abstract:
The success of a company is sustainably dependent on the robustness of their products. Product concept should be designed adaptable for initiated changes but resistant against unforeseen changes. But how can product structures be evaluated whether they are robust? In this study, we present a methodology to evaluate the structural robustness by modeling and analyzing dependencies of product concepts in Multi-Domain-Matrices. We conducted four empirical case studies in industry to test and refine...    »
