Abstract

This article is devoted to the design with size-adjustable parts approach which is used for mass customization. The article provides a framework for design optimization of size-adjustable parts which enable to achieve incessant adjustability on one or more dimensions of the product. The proposed framework is based on the analysis of size dependences between parts and the difficulty to assemble them addressed through a DSM approach. In addition, these two domains are moderated by the number of size-adjustable parts and the cost of the solution. The article includes a case study to demonstrate the application of the developed framework and a conclusion with a discussion of limitations and directions for further research.
