Abstract

Effective engineering management tools are imperative in today's competitive environment. The Design Structure Matrix (DSM) is a tool that is used to plan and organize the product development process efficiently. The DSM is based on information flows between activities in the development process. All design tasks and their relationships are expressed in matrix form. Through algorithms designed to reorganize the matrix, an efficient execution order of development activities can be proposed. In addition, the DSM has a numerical function that evaluates the design process quantitatively in order to estimate the total time required to complete a project. In this thesis, three design models are presented in the application of the DSM in the product development process of an actual product: a motorized wheel. The detailed process of applying the DSM method in the product development process will be presented.
