STRUCTURAL COMPLEXITY MANAGEMENT USING DOMAIN-SPANNING STRUCTURAL CRITERIA
Manufacturing technical products implies complex design processes and complex product architectures. One perspective is to characterize products and their design processes by their underlying structures. Comparing and evaluating these structures makes it necessary to interpret underlying patterns, different structural criteria and then evaluate their impacts. There are many structural criteria describing patterns included in single domains. This paper closes the gap of interpreting domain-spanning structural criteria and complements the existing possibilities to evaluate system’s structures.
