Designer has to do crucial decisions at fairly early design phase. Thus there is a need a tool for the evaluation of a concept. We present a tool for concept evaluation at the point where the design is still fairly open, but there exists a coarse idea of the future product. The tool consist properties of the concept, production network, and business environment. The principle is that by visualising the relations between the chosen and/or existing relations the designer can easily see if the choices made are good or not.
