Abstract—This paper aims to propose and demonstrate a method for assessing cost and the value for Stakeholders along complex products lifecycle. The method includes the product analysis to identify all the lifecycle phases and respective activities, the stakeholder mapping, classification and selection, relationship to the product and, at final, the data weighing to give a normalized view of cost and value perceived by the stakeholders during the product entire lifecycle. The method runs alongside the early product development process showing how cost and value may vary according to the product lifecycle. Metrics derived in the method can be used to manage the stakeholders to aim get successes during the life of a complex product. The method is demonstrated on the SARA suborbital system developed by the Institute of Aeronautics and Space and the Brazilian industry, in São José dos Campos, SP, Brazil. SARA is a small Brazilian satellite for microgravity experiments with reentry in atmosphere. This project is adequate for demonstrating the method due the complexity involved. Main stakeholders in the project are scientists, systems architects, industry, funding agencies. In an article presented in the 2008 International Aeronautical Congress the initial studies were shown and now the method is presented in its final version.
