This paper concerns itself with quantification of the intangible factors in Product Design Decisions where there is one very big supplier with one very big customer and a unique product. The product design is represented as a state diagram, or curve, with Time as one axis and Product or Material State as the other. Industry affects the product design curve with various levels of decisions. This paper describes four of these levels and investigates a case in which three levels are involved.
