APPROACH ON THE CONTROL OF ITERATIONS IN THE MULTIDISCIPLINARY DEVELOPMENT OF TECHNICAL SYSTEMS
Due to the increasing complexity of products as well as the product development the course of the product development process is not foreseeable in detail; it develops iteratively in its progression. To help the developer to distinguish unnecessary iterations from helpful ones and to avoid time-consuming and cost-intensive detours, a classification of iterations and based on this a practical method of accomplishment for each identified class of iterations is shown in this paper. An approach on the control of iterations in the multidisciplinary development is depicted and shown by an example. By the presented procedure, the developer is aided in the accomplishment of inevitable iterations and unnecessary iterations can be avoided.
