title PROCESS INTEGRATION IN BUILDING DESIGN USING THE PARAMETER-BASED DESIGN STRUCTURE MATRIX

summary This paper reviews existing process models in the Architecture-Engineering-Construction (AEC) industry and identifies two common deficiencies in them: 1. Current process models used in the industry still have a top-down approach including very little information about interrelationships at lower levels. Although these models provide a good overview of the design process, they are often too abstract to define, in detail, for complex multi-parameter problems. 2. Iteration is an important problem in collaborative design. However, most of the existing process models fail in identifying and minimizing it. With a view to alleviate these problems, this paper introduces the parameter-based Design Structure Matrix (DSM) as a tool for process integration and improvement in building design. The uses of the tool are shown via simple examples and suggestions are made for further research.
