Abstract

The process dynamics of a 3rd year design project are analyzed using DSM methodologies. First, the stability characteristics are determined. Then a sensitivity analysis is performed to compare differing design process models as provided by the students. Finally, the effect of random disturbances of varying degrees and points of occurrence are analyzed. The results will assist students with organizing and tackling tasks more efficiently, while instructors can foresee their window of opportunity in implementing design changes, as well as prepare them to mitigate project delays of unknown cause.
