Abstract

Research has shown that higher order interactions are important in evaluating change propagation within a system. This paper presents a systematic approach to evaluate how component interactions beyond the first order affect the interconnectivity of the product/system. A correlation between the higher order component interactions and the betweenness of the components is identified. This information is then used to identify relationships between different products and make inferences about additional systems that exhibit similar patterns. The methods are also applied to subsets of product configuration rules to understand whether or not the same relationship trends occur within product configuration as in product architecture.
