Abstract

Designing effective and acceptable policy is a non-trivial task for decision makers and stakeholders. Especially, policy formulation related to environmental management is still a serious challenge. It requires development of new tools to support better understanding of the complexities involved in addressing problems and finding the best solutions. We believe that using a systematic approach to design public policies helps to model the structure of complex policies, which can drive the whole system structure of organization management towards sustainability. A case study in policy formulation and analysis related to a large industrial wastewater treatment plant in Brazil is presented. The results obtained from the morphological analysis are used in the formulation of policy alternatives through the application of design structure matrix. The results have the potential to further promote the use of modeling tools in the formulation of policies for improvement of policy performance and effectiveness for different areas.

18TH INTERNATIONAL DSM CONFERENCE 2016, SÃO PAULO, BRAZIL, 29-31 AUGUST, 2016 SUSTAINABILITY IN MODERN PROJECT MANAGEMENT Dependency and Structure Modelling (DSM) techniques support the management of complexity by focusing attention on the elements of a complex system and how they relate to each other. DSM-based techniques have proven to be very valuable in understanding, designing, and optimizing complex system architectures such as those of products, organizations, and processes. The International...
