Abstract

A key point, today, is the development of products that fulfil the individual customer needs as close as possible. The market trend, hence, is towards the ""mass customization"". However, mass customization in itself introduces new demands on firms, these include improved product development processes, flexible manufacturing planning, and closer supply chain management.
The goal of our research is the identification of an approach (method and technology) for the design of product families that can be configured for the needs of SME's.
The objective of the present work, in particular, has been the development of a KAE system application to shorten the time of module configuration phase (instantiation) aiding the designer decision-making activity.
