HOLISTIC SYSTEMS INTEGRATION

HARNESSING THE POWER OF Information

Having spent two days together in Greenville, South Carolina, we hope that you all returned safely from the 11th DSM Conference on 12 and 13 October 2009. We are looking forward to meet you all again in Cambridge, UK.

 

Out of 43 submissions, 31 papers were accepted after a detailed review process supported by the review committee. Participants came from different disciplines, with a strong focus on industrial practitioners (about one third of all registered participants). The presented papers covered a wide range of topics:

  • Complexity
  • Applications
  • Change Management
  • Extending DSM Methodology
  • Project Management
  • Requirements Management
  • Data Input
  • Visualization
  • Product Development

We cordially thank all authors, presenters, and reviewers!
