Abstract

It is common for companies to generate new products through modi cation of existing ones. This is known as incremental change. During this process, designers are usually faced with more than one solution alternatives at key decision points. These solution alternatives are then evaluated and selected during concept selection.However, it is well documented that changes required for the new solutions can propagate undesirably to the rest of the product. The objective of this paper is to identify the limitations of current concept selection tools in considering change propagation, and to describe how research in engineering change modelling can be incorporated to enhance current tools

Keywords: Incremental Change, Selection of Solutions, Change Modelling.
