This paper concerns aiding mass customization, or, more accurately, how the two activities of product configuration and production planning can be achieved, optimized and computer supported in a concurrent way. An example relevant to the configuration and planning of a small aircraft illustrates our propositions all along the paper. Product configuration(More)
A better integration of preliminary product design and project management processes at early steps of system design is nowadays a key industrial issue. Therefore, the aim is to make firms evolve from classical sequential approach (first product design the project design and management) to new integrated approaches. In this paper, a model for integrated(More)
This paper deals with mass customization and the association of the product configuration task with the planning of its production process while trying to minimize cost and cycle time. Our research aims at producing methods and constraint based tools to support this kind of difficult and constrained problem. In some previous works, we have considered an(More)
formance of optimization approaches can be measured and characterized. This article aims at present our research perspectives to achieve a benchmark for concurrent configuration and planning optimization problems. A benchmark is a set of reference models that represents a particular kind of problem. Product configuration and project planning are classic(More)
This communication aims to propose a two step interactive aiding system dealing with product configuration and production planning. The first step assists interactively and simultaneously the configuration of a product and the planning of its production process. Then a second step complete the two previous tasks thanks to a constrained multi-criteria(More)
1 This communication deals with mass customization and the association of the product configuration task with the planning of its production process while trying to minimize cost and cycle time. We consider a two steps approach that first permit to interactively (with the customer) achieve a first product configuration and first process plan (thanks to(More)
