Title:
On the Applicability of Structural Criteria in Complexity Management 
Pages contribution:
21-32 
Abstract:
Companies face challenges due to increasing complexity through shorter product life cycles, manifold costumer requirements, more solution options and discipline-spanning collaboration. During the development of complex systems efficient tools for analysis and for assessment of solutions are necessary. A common approach is structural analysis, which can be applied in early development phases. System structures are analyzed with structural criteria such as cycles and clusters. Manifold criteria ha...    »
