Configuration Rule Management
Research Project , 2010 – 2012

A configurable product platform is an efficient way to handle a wide range of product variation and offering and at the same time utilize a limited number of parts and components. To manage this in the different processes in the company, the product documentation is managed through a PDM system. However, when the variation of the product offering increases over time, the situation for the engineer, becomes more and more complex when doing product changes, despite the support from the PDM system.
