Contribution to engineering change management in product development projects : reference models and multi-agent-based simulation

Abstract : The overall goal of this Ph.D. research is to provide reference models, support me- thods and tools that simulate change propagations in a Product Development (PD) project to assist decision-makings. We firstly establish a change analysis framework of modeling the context of change occurrence and propagation by taking into account the multiple knowledge areas of PD project simultaneously. Under the framework, we propose the conceptual models of change occurrence and change propagation that pro- vide a qualitative method to identify change and change propagation and imply some characteristics of change propagations. Relying on that, we suggest the procedures of building up the change propagation networks. Within the network, we propose the methodology of simulating change propagations and then present the process of im- plementing the methodologies and the models as a software prototype by using multi- agent based technology.
