DTU Ørsted Lecture with Professor Steven Eppinger

The Architecture of Complex System Development

Addressing many of our critical global challenges and creating today’s technical products and large systems all involve tremendously complex engineering processes.

We now have methods to study and improve these development processes based on analysis of the myriad interfaces comprising their architecture. We use a method known as Design Structure Matrix (DSM) which enables graphical mapping of complex architectures and analytical insights leading to improved system engineering and integration.

As modern engineering methods become more digital, distributed, and agile, DSM-based analysis has proven to be extremely valuable in managing this complexity. To illustrate the method, we draw upon examples from electronics, energy, aerospace, telecommunication, automobile, and other industries.
