Abstract: In this paper, the Design Structure Matrix (DSM) method is presented to improve planning and scheduling in asset management. The main advantage of the DSM over traditional project scheduling tools such as Critical Path Method (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. Three DSM methods: Path Searching, Powers of the Adjacency Matrix, and Reachability Matrix methods are discussed. As a case study, DSM methods are implemented to reduce design iteration or rework in an engineering project. New project duration is optimised compare to initial project duration.
