Approach of Knowledge-intensive Support and Fuzzy FMEA for System Development: Application for Product Design

  • Jeremy S. Liang, Yu Rongsong


In the trend of variant global market, to promote the product competitiveness, researchers and companies have persistently seeking out the optimal ways regarding product development. This study investigates the suitability of knowledge system methodology to current competitive product development with high-quality demand in the design phase. Also an assisted architecture with knowledge-intensive method for new product development is presented. According to the above mentioned methodology and approach, a prototype platform is generated and implemented. Meanwhile, the results are validated by using a fuzzy DFMEA evaluation approach. Because this proposed system can support novice designers to execute quality improvement, evaluate design alteration and select appropriate materials, it enhances the robustness of products in early design phase. Finally, an instance is depicted and discussed by applying the prototype system.
