Abstract

We propose Design Structure Model Data Exchange file format as a common file format to promote reliable and efficient exchange of Design Structure Model (DSM) data. The DSMDE is an extension of the Matrix Market (MM) file format, a widely used file format for the exchange of dense and sparse matrix data arising in numerous scientific applications. At present there does not exist a common standard for sharing DSM data. We believe that a standardized exchange format will greatly facilitate research and development of DSM modelling techniques by making data widely available than currently possible. The DSMDE is expected to be a standard way to share DSM data among researchers, practitioners, and on different programming environments.

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.
