Abstract

Competition for most companies means there is a need to offer their products in a number of different
variants to their customers. Tools such as computer-aided product configuration systems to automatically
compose existing components to new variants of a specific product are widely used today. However, in
contemporary CAE tools there is a lack of intelligent mechanisms to consider such aspects, especially in
relation to interaction between ECAD and MCAD affects. This paper proposes the use of type-2 fuzzy
logic to circumvent such problems in capturing the cost of interactions using Integrated Product Teams.
