Prioritizing plays a complex role in workprocesses, forming the vision, goals and strategies for the future. Axiomatic Design offers principles which can improve prioritizing. Therefore, Axiomatic Design was applied when creating an operational development model at one department of semiconductor manufacturing at Ericsson Microelectronics. This particular model includes all fellow-workers in the forming of vision, goals and strategies. The procedure for carrying out an operational development at Ericsson Microelectronics is presented in this paper. One of the most significant results of this procedure was a clear strategy for the future, providing convincing arguments for financial sponsors.
