Abstract

This paper describes the application of two methods, and the proposed framework, with which we want to achieve optimal choice platform products, combining the following methods: Modular Function Deployment (MFD) (my previous work) and evaluation using of multicriteria decision making process, based on the method of Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP). Here we applied computer tools “SuperDecisions” for creating a hierarchical model of AHP decision making. With this work we want to improve and accelerate the development of product platform (in this case on the example of cooling generator with air-cooled condenser with axial fan and for outdoor position of installation). According to the information getting from analysis of decision hierarchy criteria in software tool “Super Decisions”, we can do an evaluation of the product family and product platform development. The evaluation of the generated results will help us to produce positive successful business projects, in creating a quick method that will help in future decision makers to implement the evaluation of planning product families. We can say that this paper is focus also on practical issues and quickly implementation.
