Abstract

The Construction industry is multidisciplinary in nature and involves a number of design disciplines/teams – architect, structural designers, civil engineers, etc. Each design team has its own perception on the project which is completely different from the other discipline. Additionally, the involvement of these teams one after the other during the design evolution enforces a situation of rapid and continuous information exchange till the design completion. MDM (Multiple Domain Matrix) is an emerging concept that meets the demands of extensive information exchanges across the design disciplines. The authors had proposed a structured methodology with minimal user inputs to develop a MDM which can capture the complete interactions of the design teams. Data was collected for laying of interceptor sewers and the initial testing proves that the methodology is generic and can be applied to construction projects with minor refinements.

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...
