Examples


A Generic Quantification-Scale for Resource-Efficiency.

Scale:
A defined [Unit of Resource: Default = Engineering Hours]
[total or marginal**]
for producing a defined [Product]
at defined [Levels of Product-Value Attributes];
and using no more than defined [ Levels of Other Resources],
under stated [Conditions].

For example
Product x used 50% more Engineering hours than its successor product”.

That is a statement about relative Resource-Efficiency.


**By “total” we mean all relevant overhead costs, including some allocation of the capital and operational costs of Platform-Development.

By “marginal” Resources we mean the pure costs of the Product development, excluding already sunk capital costs, such as for Platform Architecture and Process.
