Abstract

New design methods and tools often promise large benefits for specific engineering tasks or whole engineering processes to make increasingly complex and sophisticated products possible. However, estimations for the pay-off of new methods or tools are based on gut feelings or rare expert knowledge. In this paper we present our approach for well-founded quantitative estimations for the economic impact of new methods or tools. We show the beginning of our methodology with an early experiment and the impact analysis for a case study of a design flow for electronic circuits.
