Abstract: In this paper, design structure matrix (DSM) methods are presented to manage design iteration or rework which is inherent in the design process. Three DSM methods: path searching, powers of the adjacency matrix, and reachability matrix methods are discussed. Their advantages and disadvantages with respect to the project scope are summarized. As a case study, DSM methods are implemented to reduce the design iteration or rework in a complex engineering project. The main advantage of the DSM methods over traditional project management tools such as CPM or Gantt chart is in compactness and ability to present an organized and efficient mapping among tasks that is clear and easy to read regardless of size.
