Workshop on Design Structure Matrix (DSM) and Complexity in AEC Systems

In a joint workshop between the UC Berkeley and Technische Universitaet Muenchen in collaboration with industry s part of the newly formed Special Interest  Group "Managing Structural Complexity", practices in using DSM for lean design management are were discussed. The workshop focused on the use of matrix models (Design Structure Matrix [DSM] and Multiple Domain Matrix [MDM]) to gain deeper understanding of complexity in AEC systems that is value-adding vs. waste. We are delighted to have colleagues from the UK report on their use of DSM in design management, and colleagues from the Technical University Munich report on their DSM/MDM work in lean, new product development.
