Mitigating the effort for engineering changes in product development using a fuzzy expert system
The timing of testing the maturity of a product within the product development process challenges manufacturing firms. This paper presents an approach to identify the timing to be checked for differences between the as-is-state and anticipated to-be-state of the development. Therefore, a model is established to simulate a product development process by using a fuzzy-expert system. Using this model, an optimization is performed to ascertain an ideal timing.
