Abstract

The adaptability of a retail scheme is explored by applying Eckert et al. (2004) classifications to a UK
shopping mall (part of a mixed use development). Visualisations of the case study data are presented
as classified component types (constants, absorbers, carriers, multipliers), and change events (change
ripples, blossoms, avalanches). Applied buffers and resistors are also highlighted to illustrate how the
scheme dealt with change propagation. The paper concludes by briefly offering some thoughts on the
applicability of the Eckert et al. (2004) classification system to the construction industry.

Keywords: Adaptability, layers, change propagation, retail, buildings, design, DSM

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...
