DSM Conference

The International Design Structure Matrix (DSM) Conference is the annual forum for practitioners, academics and researchers, and software developers of DSM-related tools, to exchange experiences, development results, trends, and develop new ideas to complexity management in all kinds of industries from different perspectives.

The DSM Conference has evolved from a series of workshops at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the Engineering Design Center  at the University of Cambridge, it has turned into a full conference, having made a tour around the world. At all times, it was one of the meeting places for the DSM Community that has continuously grown to about 70 active members, most of whom have been constant participants.
