Hello all,

Please give me some ideas on how to evaluate or measure the complexity of product. I have been told to work out a standard complexity rate to weight different products (consumer electronic product in an assembly plant).

Below are what I found from the web.

1. Cycle time: complexity in assembly is measured by the difference between theoretical minimum operation times and projected actual operation times.

2. Number of components: for an assembled product, one possible indicator of product complexity is its number of components - the more parts, the more complex the product is.

3. Manufacturing and/or assembly process: for a manufactured component, a possible measure of part complexity is the number of processing steps required to produce it.

I'd like to know if there is another way to measure the product complexity. If yes, what is it? Is there any formula can be used? Any example can be provided? Please advise. Thanks a lot!
