Abstract

This paper describes an approach to apply self organizing map (SOM) for the support of the developer to optimize the design process of adaptable products in the automotive supplier industry. The SOM is able to asses the similarity of requirement lists. Assuming that similar requirement lists lead to similar products, the SOM is able to identify the existing product variant, which has to be changed least to fulfil a new order. A prerequisite for using SOM is to formalise the requirements.
