Article
This work deals with the customer-supplier relationship and concerns offer definition in Engineer-To-Order situations (ETO), by adopting the supplier point of view. In such cases, when the offer definition relies simply on key design choices without a detailed design, there is a specific risk (ETO-specific risk) that customer expectations cannot be...
Article
The goal of this communication is to present the first ideas and proposition about the panels layout design problem in order to improve building energetic performances. First the origins and interest of the problem are presented. In two words, too many buildings with poor energetic performances and too low ratio of replacement lead to a very strong...

When responding to calls for tenders, companies must elaborate on relevant bids relative to the needs and expectations of customers (for example, in terms of price and delay). We built and deployed a knowledge-based system (KBS) to aid companies when developing bids. Based on a pre-defined generic bid model, a methodology to support companies when...
Article
Successful bidding involves defining relevant technical bid solutions that conform to the customers' requirements, then selecting the most interesting one for the commercial offer. However, in Engineer-To-Order (ETO) industrial contexts, this selection process is complicated by issues of imprecision, uncertainty and confidence regarding the values...

Concurrent configuration of a product and its associated production process is a challenging problem in customer/supplier relations dealing with customisable or configurable products. It gathers in a single model multiple choices and constraints which come simultaneously from products (choices of components or functionalities), from processes (choi...
Article
In many design problems, the designer must select the design solution from among several alternative design solutions. In situations where relevant information to evaluate the design solutions are not available, the evaluation is imprecise and uncertain. Therefore, in order to make the right decision, it is necessary to take into account imprecisio...

Article
In a bidding process, the bidder must define and evaluate potential offers in order to propose the most suitable one to the potential customer. Proposing attractive but also realistic offers to various potential customers is a key factor for the bidder to stay competitive. In order to achieve this, the bidder needs to be very sure about the technic...
Article
In order to respond to a call for tenders, bidders must define and evaluate potential solutions, based upon the specifications of customer's requirements and their capabilities (skills, existing solutions, resources … etc.). The definition and the evaluation of potential solutions are not trivial activities. The lack of relevant information makes t...
