Abstract

Planning and scheduling projects, but also maintenance activities in large scientific facilities result in complex dependencies between tasks. Handling such dependencies becomes a non-trivial problem as the number of tasks to consider grows. DSM offers solutions to handle such complex sequences of processes, but lacks expressivity when it comes to characterizing the dependencies. Adding collaboration in the pictures makes the problem even more difficult to solve, with the need of communication, but also the different roles to handle and the compromises to reach in case of conflicts. Artificial Intelligence offers with qualitative algebras means to work on these issues, and enable to take complexity and collaboration into account in a new parameterized DSM to plan and schedule more efficiently in such contexts.

Dependency and Structure Modelling (DSM) techniques support complex system design by focusing attention on system elements and their interdependencies related to all domains: product, process and organization. For this 2014 edition, we would like to invite original scholarly work related to modeling, analysis and prediction of risk and change management in complex systems. Emergence is one of complex system properties stemming from its’ complexity, whether desired or not. This complexity makes it...
