TOWARDS THE PREDICTION OF MULTIPHYSIC INTERACTIONS USING MDM AND QFD MATRICES
In view to customer demand, today products are multifunctional. Soon in the choice of concept, these new integration needs lead to entangled and complex collaboration for the project team. To achieve the analysis of multiphysic interactions, the AID matrix based method has been developed. Several different design matrices (DSM, DMM and QFD) are evaluated and used to determine appropriate mappings between architecture alternatives, functions and performances. Using indicators and heuristics, the voice of design departments and the complexity of collaboration can be integrated.
