Abstract

In the context of new product development, highly constrained multi-disciplinary systems are difficult to design and generally lead to a non-optimal but acceptable solution (Seepersad, 2008). Such products are interdependent and imply the collaboration of designers from different design departments who have to take into account various points-of-view.
Collaboration starts early in the definition and choice of concepts. Concept analysis is thus a key point in product design. Existing tools only allow the analysis of concepts regarding the component point-of-view. Our industrial analysis shows that several collaborative problems are located outside component design. For instance, some incompatibilities appear during the integration step. These incompatibilities can be avoided by an analysis of interfaces between design departments.
This article describe our approach, based on enrich semantic in DSM, for the integration of such multiphysic interfaces early in the choice of concepts.

Dependency and Structure Modeling (DSM) originates from the methods that have come about from using the Design Structure Matrix and similar methods (matrix-based as well as graph based). These methods have proven very valuable in designing complex systems, optimizing technical systems and product architectures and organizations, densely networked processes and large market structures. With its ability to manage complexity by looking into the structure of a system, it has led to many other advances...
