Structural Complexity Management: An Approach for the Field of Product Design

Structural Complexity Management: An Approach for the Field of Product DesignProduct design is characterized by a steady increase in complexity. The main focus of this book is a structural approach on complexity management. This means, system structures are considered in order to address the challenge of complexity in all aspects of product design. Structures arise from the complex dependencies of system elements. Thus, the identification of system structures provides access to the understanding of system behavior in practical applications. The book presents a methodolog…
