Abstract

Due to the increased popularity of Product Configuration Systems (PCS), researchers reported both the success and failure stories of PCS. However, most of the literature does not reveal the real cost and befits from PCS due to the lack of access to real case companies datum. Therefore, there is little detailed quantification of the benefits, costs, and return on investment (ROI) from using PCS published in the literature. There are little research to compare the ROI of PCS project both in quotation and engineering phase. Hence, this article aims at analyzing the short-term benefits and the cost from developing, implementing and maintaining product configuration systems (PCSs). The analyses presented in this study are based on need of the European leading engineering and design office for heat exchangers.
