dc.description.abstractThe authors use simulation to analyse the resource-driven dependencies between concurrent processes used to create customised products in a company. Such processes are uncertain and unique according to the design changes required. However, they have similar structures. For simulation, a level of abstraction is chosen such that all possible processes are represented by the same activity network. Differences between processes are determined by the customisations that they implement. The approach is illustrated through application to a small business that creates customised fashion products. We suggest that similar techniques could be applied to study intertwined design processes in more complex domains.
dc.description.sponsorshipThe case study was carried out as part of Considerate Design for Personalised Fashion funded by the EPSRC/AHRC Design in the 21st century programme. The context of a multi-project environment was analysed as part of the EU Framework 7 CONVERGE project CP-FP 228746-2.
