Morphological design methodology is one of the most useful methods to use during concept generation stage. Best design solution can be reached between the options which are offered. However, there has been considerable criticism of this design process model. Because, many possible combinations and different solutions can be obtain by multiplying of all function alternatives with one another. Only one or two of these design alternatives is practicable for production stage. Hence, concept design stage which is most important step of machine design stage does not complete easily during product design stage. In this study, we applied some modifications to morphological product design to achieve a new and different systematic product design methodology. Three different products will be used for performance measurement of a new approach to systematic product design and comparison with morphological design methodology. All of these methodologies will be apply to three products and the success of new approach will be obtain comparatively
