Abstract

Electronics Development Center (ELC) at Yanmar Corporation applied DSM to investigate the
project’s underlying rework which we couldn’t have picked up by the current way. We set the DSM’s
x-axis as the development phase, y-axis as the work contents, and inputted man-hour data of ELC
members to the matrix after we defined the work contents to do at each phase. In this way, we could
pick up when, what kind of work contents and how many hours each project reworked. By further
analyzing the results of DSM, we could find why reworks occurred and the way to reduce reworks.

Keywords: Underlying rework, DSM, YELL process (V model process), when, what kind of work contents each PD project reworked

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...
