TOWARDS A SYSTEM MODEL TO IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF DECISIONS
For the evaluation of components in the design of complex systems, it is hard to determine both the evaluation criteria and their importance correctly. The paper introduces a new approach to determine the importance of component’s evaluation criteria that bases on a particular description of the technical system. Furthermore, a concept is integrated to recognize component’s evaluation criteria, even if they are not directly linked with the development goals. It is also shown, how this approach can be applied to products as a part of a superordinate system. The approach is illustrated with the application on a new elevator technology.
