Hello everyone, I'm Vinh, student from Bach Khoa HCM University, Viet Nam. I am working on graduate thesis about "Design for modularity (DFM)". I am curious if any of you have sturdied about the DFM workflow. If Yes, I want to ask some related question:

  • Can I apply the algorithm of DFM for a single machine but several time to determine the number of children-machine (module) and then the number of part (or the smaller machine in the children-machine) in each module instead of running the workflow only one time for all the part of the machine and find out the number of module at the same time?
  • Have you ever used Microsoft Excel to run the Clustering algorithm (such as CIA/ROC/ P-Median/ Assignment,...)? If yes, can you share me how to do it?*

Sorry for my bad English.

Thank you for your attention!
