Design Structure Matrix Methods and Applications

MIT Press

Design structure matrix (DSM) is a straightforward and flexible modeling
technique that can be used for designing, developing, and managing complex systems.
DSM offers network modeling tools that represent the elements of a system and their
interactions, thereby highlighting the system's architecture (or designed
structure). Its advantages include compact format, visual nature, intuitive
representation, powerful analytical capacity, and flexibility. Used primarily so far
in the area of engineering management, DSM is increasingly being applied to complex
issues in health care management, financial systems, public policy, natural
sciences, and social systems. This book offers a clear and concise explanation of
DSM methods for practitioners and researchers. The book's four sections correspond
to the four primary types of DSM models, offering tools for representing product
architectures, organization architectures, process architectures, and multidomain
architectures (which combine different types of DSM models to represent multiple
domains simultaneously). In each section, a chapter introducing the technique is
followed by a chapter of examples showing a variety of applications of that DSM
type. The forty-four applications represent a wide range of industries (including
automotive, aerospace, electronics, building, and pharmaceutical), countries (among
them Australia, Germany, Japan, Turkey, and the United States), and problems
addressed (modularity, outsourcing, system integration, knowledge management, and
