Application of axiomatic design and design structure matrix to the decomposition of engineering systems

  title={Application of axiomatic design and design structure matrix to the decomposition of engineering systems},
  author={Marin D. Guenov and Stephen G. Barker},
  journal={Systems Engineering},
A design decomposition-integration model, named COPE, is proposed in which Axiomatic Design Matrices (DM) map Functional Requirements to Design Parameters while Design Structure Matrices (DSM) provide structured representation of the system development context. In COPE, the DM and the DSM co-evolve. Traversing between the two types of matrices allows for some control in the application of the system knowledge which surrounds the decision making process and the definition of the system… CONTINUE READING
