A modeling approach towards an extended product data model for sustainable mass-customized products uri icon


  • This paper presents an extension of a generic Product Data Model (PDM) to Mass-Customization (MC) and Sustainability (S) paradigms with the aim to fulfill the requirements to support a Sustainable Mass-Customized (S-MC) product design process. The extended PDM (ePDM) is focused on a product's Bill of Materials (BOM), which gathers the main information related to a product and its specifications in terms of its design and manufacturing processes. Therefore, the ePDM developed and presented in this research work is capable to provide either product components/parts, product sustainability and product mass-customization related information in order to support the design of S-MC products. © IFAC.
