Scaling uncertainty occurs due to effects that are neglected by purpose or due to ignorance and is related to the product models. It results in insufficient mathematic scaling models. The consequence is a need for iterations to ensure a proper result of the scaling process. Size range development can be improved by anticipation of size dependent effects in early stages of the process, implementing a frontloading strategy in size range development. Improvement potentials are analysed qualitatively and linked to the occurring uncertainty. Basic elements of a scaling integrated PD process are proposed.
