Abstract

Unique solutions for unique requirements is typical for Engineer-to-Order companies. This entails variance in products and processes which is often mitigated by efforts in standardization, modularization or platform design, etc. Such portfolio strategies depend on coherent system definitions like well defined solution spaces, common definitions and shared nomenclatures. A method is proposed to systematically uncover, reveal and visualize variation in system definitions and decompositions to support such strategies. The method is tested with an industrial case company and three projects are subject to analyses. From this application, three sources of system variation are identified.
