Abstract

This paper is intended to make the existing DSM community and new potential industry users aware
of the formation of a DSM Industrial Special Interest Group or DSMiSIG, and introduce them to its
charter, current activities and roadmap of future activities.
Since MIT initiated the industrial application of DSM in 1989, the following twenty three years have
seen significant academic development of DSM and creation of awareness in industry. Unfortunately,
after two decades, DSM has still not found general acceptance within industry and is still not a
standard industrial process or tool, despite its obvious advantages over current working practices.
The DSMiSIG was formed to close this application gap, and its steering committee has set a goal for
having 5% of the top 1000 Companies and 1% of innovation active SMEs using DSM as a standard
practice by Q4 of 2014. A number of activities have been completed so far to meet these goals.

With its ability to manage complexity by looking into the structure of a system, it has led to many other advances...
