Abstract

The integrative planning of new product development projects considering complex process, product
and organisational interdependencies requires innovative methods and tools. The presented simulation
model is based on the design structure matrix and allows the prediction of probability density
functions for project duration and costs. It considers information dependencies between project
activities, iteration probabilities and rework. Furthermore, changes in product design can be modelled
and simulated based on interdependencies between product components, design parameters and
development activities. This new approach makes use of domain mapping matrices. It provides an
insight into how product variant creations and design parameter changes can be integrated in the
process-oriented simulation of new product development projects.

Keywords: Domain mapping matrix, new product development, project simulation, project planning

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...
