Abstract

In the early negotiation stage in design, companies need to rapidly identify possible solutions to respond to buyer requirements. However, because of the fuzziness at this stage, it is difficult to use detailed architecture generation methods. A concise method taking into account uncertainty is needed. This paper presents a method using probabilistic matrices to generate all possible architectures and filtering them with an uncertainty threshold. The method is particularly adapted to the needs and special conditions during early negotiation and efficiently provides possible solutions for further estimation. This method intends to provide a foundation for early negotiation, thus helping companies reduce risk.

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...
