AbstractNew products often evolve from past and existing products. This evolution largely defines the enterprise competitiveness in terms of the speed, quality and cost. Those design features that have proven successful or “fit” will survive and therefore be inherited by the new products, forming what is usually called a product “platform” and in turn providing a basis for mass customization (MC). This approach to new product development is generally termed as “Platform Product Development”. Whether or not an enterprise is able to capitalize on the concept of product platforms is vital to its business survival and growth. Whilst the approach has been widely appreciated and practiced with success in several industrial sectors, its industrial practice has remained as an art, heavily dependent on the experience and skills of individual designers and managers. Researchers and management consultants have been working on platform leveraging strategies at the strategic level, and guidelines for better structuring the approach to facilitate its adoption and implementation. This research project recognizes an equal need for scientific decision supports at the tactical level for design practitioners and managers to address fundamental questions such as (A) how a platform should be established for a family of products in a given industrial and market context, and (B) how a product development team chooses and then customizes the most appropriate product platform to meet the customer requirements from a specific market segment with particular manufacturing resources and supply bases. This paper is to describe a scientific and effective decision - Genetic Algorithm to assist product development practitioners and managers with major decision activities in the process of platform product development under several focus areas.
