Increasing functionality, increasing individualization as well as the enormous complexity of modern products lead to steadily increasing challenges in the domain of product development. This causes a necessity of a novel approach for a purposeful guidance to lead developers through the process of product development. Therefore the objective of this work is to present an advanced procedure model for property-based product development which is showing effects of characteristics specifications based on a structured mapping of product properties. Due to its structure and the integration of a multitude of individual approaches that are developed within this paper, the presented procedure model provides product developers with a detailed guidance to the process of product development. Moreover, developers are supported not only in the field of preventative avoidance of unnecessary design iterations but also in in dealing with unavoidable iterations. By continuously monitoring the productâs degree of maturity information about the achievement of the required properties and about necessary changes can be deduced.
