In: Proceedings of IEEE Region 8 International Conference SIBIRCON-2008, Novosibirsk, pp 280–285) addresses combinatorial synthesis, improvement, and aggregation of composite solutions in electronic shopping of modular product(s). Basic problems in electronic shopping are described (including new ones): searching for product, multicriteria selection of product, design of product configuration, synthesis of product trajectory, and aggregation of several product prototypes. Illustrative examples (multicriteria ranking, combinatorial synthesis, synthesis of product trajectory, aggregation of product prototypes) correspond to notebook, modular car and its repair plan.
