Abstract

In the context of new product development, highly constraint multi-disciplinary systems are difficult to design and generally lead to a non optimal but acceptable solution (Seepersad et al., 2008). The design of such product implies to collaborate soon in the choice of concepts. Our industrial analysis shows that concept choice is leading to collaborative problems when a design department implies a stronger influence than others. This attitude to favor one design department decreases product performance interest. As concept evaluation is a key point in product designs, this design stage must take into account design department’s point-of-views. This article describes our PC-DSM matrix, based on enrich semantic in DSM, for the integration of such multi-physic interfaces early in the choice of concepts.

ds endorsed conferenceDSM 2011 - The 13th International Conference on Dependency and Structure Modelling (DSM) Techniques

Please note: Due to the sad situation at the moment in Japan, the DSM Conference 2011, originally planned to be held at Kyoto/Japan, has been shifted to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA. The date has been moved to one day earlier than originally planned: September 14 - 15, 2011. Dependency and Structure Modelling (DSM) techniques support the management of complexity by focusing attention on the elements of a complex system and how they are related...
