Manufacturing and Resource Constraint Consideration. Little attention has been paid to constraints related to resource utilization, flexible manufacturing, reconfigurability, and manufacturability (Jiao et al. 2007c, 2007d); however, PFD involves all of the stages from marketing studies to supply chain management.

2006). Reconfigurable system design, flexible manufacturing, and product family design principles were investigated by Cormier et al. (2009) in order to identify key success factors in design for reconfigurability. More studies about reconfigurable system design can be found in Siddiqi et al. (2006), Ferguson et al. (2007a, b), Ferguson and Lewis (2008), Anzanello and Fogliatto (2011), and Abdi (2012). Since reconfigurability requires considerations in large scale, complexity comes as an expense to it; therefore, multidisciplinary design 28 Z.
