Abstract

Three capabilities: solution space development, robust process design,
and choice navigation are critical for mass customizers. In order to become and
stay competitive, it is proposed to establish assessment methods for these capabilities.
This paper investigates the usage of set theory as a means for developing
metrics and assessment systems. It is concluded that set theory cannot be used as
an assessment method directly but is useful in the development of metrics.
