Abstract
For make-to-order products in which the specification of some component-product variants are to be defined by customers, it is almost impossible to develop a bill-of-material system that supports customers' requests for quotation (RFQ) response activities using the existing bill-of-material concepts. To deal with this problem, a new technique for representing the relationship between parent-product variants and componenent- product variants in the generic bill-of-material (GBOM) structure is developed. The new technique is based on an assumption that the relationship between any two components in a product structure has pairwise independent property. The technique represents the relationship with compatibility constraints in the form of matrices and rules. The new representation provides users with a means to describing variants of make-to-order products as well as supporting the customers' RFQ response activities with only a limited amount of data which is comprehensive, easy to maintain, and easy to understand.
