DTU Ørsted Lecture
The Architecture of Complex System Development
Professor Steven Eppinger
28 October 2019
DTU, Kgs. Lyngby, Denmark
15:00-16:00 CET, followed by reception
DTU is proud to announce the next DTU Ørsted Lecture with Professor Steven Eppinger from Management Science and Innovation, MIT Sloan School of Management. The Ørsted Lecture series is DTU's most prestigious lecture series, inviting prominent researchers from around the world to lecture on their work, research results, and the perspectives in their research field.
Lecture: Addressing many of our critical global challenges and creating today’s technical products and large systems all involve tremendously complex engineering processes.
We now have methods to study and improve these development processes based on analysis of the myriad interfaces comprising their architecture. We use a method known as Design Structure Matrix (DSM) which enables graphical mapping of complex architectures and analytical insights leading to improved system engineering and integration. As modern engineering methods become more digital, distributed, and agile, DSM-based analysis has proven to be extremely valuable in managing this complexity.
To illustrate the method, we draw upon examples from electronics, energy, aerospace, telecommunication, automobile, and other industries.
Seating is limited. Please sign up here.
Since 1998, DTU has invited prominent researchers from around the world to lecture on their work, research results, and the perspectives in their research field at the DTU Ørsted Lecture series. The lectures are intended as a unique opportunity for researchers, students and alumni to be inspired by some of the brightest minds in fields that are investigated at DTU. The Ørsted lecturers are invited based on their prominent position within their research fields as well as for their ability to engage a wider audience with their professional enthusiasm and insight.
