Tutorials: Overview

The DSM (Design Structure Matrix) is the basic matrix. It is used to relate entities of one kind to each other, e.g. the tasks that constitute a complete project, and it can be used to identify appropriate teams, workgroups, and an ideal sequence of how the tasks can be arranged.

DMM (Domain Mapping Matrix) can be used to establish a mapping between two different views of a system, e.g. to relate functions to the component architecture. The tutorial will show you how to model, analyze and improve such a mapping.

The MDM (Multiple-Domain Matrix) combines DSM and DMM into a complete system model. As such, a complete system can be represented and managed.

In 2013 a webinar series was created for the DSM Industry Special Interest Group.  You can find those tutorials here.
