Research Seminars

The architecture of complex engineered products, processes, and organizations

Speaker: Prof. Steven Eppinger Professor of Management Science and Innovation Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Sloan School of Management, USA

12 October 2011 - Room H7 HEC school - From 2:30 pm to 4:00 pm

Development of complex engineered systems is a highly interactive social process involving hundreds of people designing thousands of interrelated components and making millions of coupled decisions. In this seminar, I will introduce three views of product development complexity: a product view, a process view, and an organization view. We are able to learn about the complex social phenomenon of product development by studying the architectures of interaction among elements within each view using a method called design structure matrix (DSM). We also compare the alignment of the interaction patterns between the product, process, and organization domains. The results of this research have included new methods for studying product development problems as well as new methods for managing product complexity and complex processes.
