In this paper, we apply usage context model to model jigsaw product family usages. Then constraint programming technique is employed to measure the feasible usages under consumers’ usage constraints.Adequacy indicators for different users and the given product family are invented and simulated. Users can make appropriate choice decision for choosing products in a family, while designers can evaluate appealing product family composition and configurations.

Keywords: Usage context model, Scale-based product family, Constraint programming technique, Usage coverage indicators.
