Abstract [en]

Complexity problems in mass customized manufacturing are frequently discussed and analysed in order to find suitable methods to optimize extent of product varietes. Moreover, product designers have to consider also constraint satisfaction problem, since some serious conflicts may occur when requirements of the customer are specified based on a wide portfolio of modules or components and given configurations cannot be found. The main scope of this paper is to explore the possibilities of using axiomatic design theory and entropy based measures for quantifying product variety induced complexity. For this purpose, two approaches will be applied on a real case. Then a comparison and analysis of obtained results are included. Computational experiments showed that proposed approaches offer comparable results and can be effectively used to quantify varietyinduced complexity in terms of mass-customized manufacturing.
