THE LAYERED DEPENDENCY STRUCTURE MATRIX FOR MANAGING COLLABORATIVE DESIGN PROCESSES.

Abstract
By : Şule Taşlı Pektaş

 
Effective collaboration and knowledge management are the major contributors of success in the construction industry. Although a huge amount of interdisciplinary knowledge is exchanged in building design processes, there is a lack of tools for representing information flows. Therefore, this paper focuses on the collaboration between architects and structural engineers and introduces an innovative matrix-based tool named “The Layered Dependency Structure Matrix” for modeling and managing the discipline-specific and collaborative design activities. The proposed method is compared with the conventional techniques used in the industry and its application is demonstrated in a beam design example. Keywords: Collaborative Design, Design Process, Disciplinary Domains, Process Modeling, Dependency Structure Matrix, Design Structure Matrix, Complexity Management.
