Abstract

Since the automation of engineering design activities through increasingly complex computer systems is a big trend among manufacturing companies the need of supporting the maintenance of such systems now quickly emerges. In this short paper, we show how DSM has been used in three different automation projects, targeting the design of engineer-to-order-products, in order to ensure that the knowledge automated by the systems is consistent and easily accessible to engineers. The DSM was used to varying extent both during the development of the systems and in runtime of the resulting design automation systems. Three levels of usage of the DSM within the design automation systems were identified: “visualization only”, “static execution sequencing”, and “dynamic execution”.

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...
