The development of avionic products is subject to high-cost pressure due to increasing international competition and small batch sizes. To compete on the global market in a long-term view, potentially arising complexity costs must already be considered in the early phases of the product generation development process. Existing approaches to cost evaluation concentrate on a subsequent evaluation of developed product family concepts alternatives. To avoid a cost- and time-intensive subsequent evaluation of complexity costs, a generic approach for the dynamic consideration of complexity costs within the product generation development process is to be developed by integrating existing approaches for the product generation development and evaluation of variety-induced complexity costs.

Keywords: complexity costs, product generation development, cost assessment, product family evaluation
