Enhancing the Balancing While Synthesizingprocess - A Method Development Project
Paper i proceeding, 2017
There exist many different product and concept development methods. Many of these do not target the
performance and cost-balance between sub-solutions in a concept. The management of properties
between sub-solutions do yield value in a cost-effective way since not all solutions for a concept is
investigated. Moreover, there is a risk of conflicts between sub-solutions which can lead to costly loops.
A concept development method, Balancing While Synthesizing-process was developed in the purpose
to support balancing activities. Results from research projects showed one step in the process not being
intuitive enough and further development was needed. A method development project was conducted to
make the particular step more intuitive. The project also includes a digitalization of the process with the
goal to achieve further improvements. This paper describes the enhanced version of the Balancing While
Synthesizing-process and the benefits achieved realized by the method development.
