Abstract: This thesis proposes a customer-based design for mass customization (CDFMC) methodology to implement the design-by-customer concept, including an object-oriented modeling approach, a constraint-based framework and the optimization models. The object-oriented modeling approach explicitly represents configuration knowledge of a product family; quality function deployment (QFD) is used as a structural method to map complex customer needs into product physical specifications. The constraint-based framework handles the product customization process, in which different algorithms are formulated to handle configuration solution generation, conflictive needs handling, and configuration solution optimization respectively. The optimization models are built based on customera??s preferences to help customers obtain optimal solutions. Utilizing the CDFMC methodology, a web-centric intelligent design prototype system is developed to implement design-by-customers. Typical customized products such as bicycles and handphones are selected as case studies in this research.
