DSM 2023 will be held as an onsite conference with selected sessions of the conference in hybrid format.

The deadline for submitting technical paper has been extended to May 30, 2023.

Dependency and Structure Modelling (DSM, also known as Design Structure Matrix) techniques support the management of complexity by focusing attention on the elements of a complex system and how they relate to each other. DSM‐based techniques have proven to be very valuable in understanding, designing, and optimizing complex system architectures such as those of products, organizations, and processes.

The International DSM Conference provides a platform for researchers, practitioners, and developers of DSM‐related tools to exchange experiences, discuss trends, and showcase results and tools. It also acts as a forum for developing new ideas regarding complexity management in all kinds of industries and from many different perspectives. The conference mission is to enhance understanding and managing complex interdenpent relationships within and across  product/process/people architectures.

The conference objectives of DSM 2023 are:

  • Leverage 24 years DSM body of knowledge with more active industry/academia/government institutions
  • Show visible collaboration with other international technical/business
    professional societies (i.e. INCOSE, IEEE, PMI, ASME, etc.)
  • Require onsite participation of recent regional industry case studies
