"abstract": "<p>Product design and supply chain management are research domains extensively explored<br>\nin literature. In the last decades, many studies have highlighted that the integration of these<br>\ntwo main domains is a key competence for manufacturing companies to increase profitability<br>\nand efficiency. However most of these studies optimize the supply chain after freezing the<br>\ndesign of the product, still considering the supply chain as the following step in product design.<br>\nThis paper presents a value-driven model-based approach that concurrently links product<br>\ndesign to supply chain in the frame of aerospace system design. The modelling of the<br>\ninformation flow exchanged between three domains - Manufacturing, Supply Chain, Overall<br>\nAircraft Design &ndash; represents the first challenge addressed in this paper. Support decision<br>\nmakers in finding the best alternative in a tradespace of proposed solutions, based on measures<br>\ncoming from multiple domains, is the key role of the value model usage. Hence, the challenge<br>\nof formalizing and modeling the selection criteria in accordance with the decision makers&rsquo;<br>\nexpectations. The main output is the &ldquo;utility-cost&rdquo; trade-space in which the global design<br>\nsolution combines manufacturing and aircraft performance with the main aspects of the<br>\nsupply chain. Case studies set-up with the support of the industrial partners demonstrate the<br>\nstrengths of this methodology, the possible applications and improvements. According to the<br>\nindustrial partners, this method could represent a key support tool that aerospace companies<br>\nmight use during the early stages of aircraft development when strategic decisions have to be<br>\ntaken.<br>\n&nbsp;</p>",
