An introduction to a powerful and flexible network modeling tool for developing and understanding complex systems, with many examples from a range of industries.

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.

Editorial Reviews

As an industrial practitioner of DSM methods since 1995, I have seen how powerful these models can be for visualization and management of complex engineering challenges. Steven Eppinger and Tyson Browning have compiled more than twenty years of DSM experience to create the definitive body of DSM knowledge. I strongly recommend this book.
