Abstract

In each stage of design and engineering processes myriad decisions are made, each influencing a large number of other processes. Often, these decisions are made implicit; if however, decision processes are more structured and transparent, a better support of product developers can be realised. In order to achieve this, also a more structured way to value different aspects in product development is required. Consequently, the assessment methods and the comparison of these methods require additional attention. Based on cost assessment, the corresponding working methods are shown. Additionally, these working methods are generalised for usage in other (life cycle) assessment methods.
