Part Based Product Upgrade

Part Based Product Upgrade

Abstract

A procedure for part based product upgrade is proposed. Part based product upgrade means product improvement as a result of improvements of its parts (i.e. changes in the values of part characteristics), which have no effect on product architecture. Preservation of product architecture is emphasized because it enables simple implementation of product upgrades. The procedure is based on product decomposition and extraction of original values of part characteristics. The question of usefulness of the granularity of decomposition for own/supplied parts and more complex building blocks is studied separately.
