Manufacturing today has become global in all aspects marketing, design, production, distribution, etc. While product family design has been an essential viewpoint for meeting the demand for product variety, its interaction with the issues of supply chain, market systems, etc. makes the meaning of product family both broad and more complicated. In this paper we call such situation ‘global product family,’ and first characterizes its components and complexity. Following this, we proposes a… CONTINUE READING
