Comprehensive Product Platform Planning ( CP 3 ) Framework

  title={Comprehensive Product Platform Planning ( CP 3 ) Framework},
  author={Souma Chowdhury and Achille Messac and Ritesh A Khire},
Development of a family of products that satisfies different market niches introduces significant challenges to today's manufacturing industries—from development time to aftermarket services. A product family with a common platform paradigm offers a powerful solution to these daunting challenges. This paper presents a new approach, the Comprehensive Product Platform Planning (CP 3) framework, to design optimal product platforms. The CP 3 framework formulates a generalized mathematical model for… CONTINUE READING
