Beschreibung

In organizational theory the coordination of many interdependent actors in complex product development projects is recognized as a key activity. With increasing project compexity this coordination becomes more and more difficult, and it is not yet known whether this effect can be controlled by frequent and intense communication among project members.
Jürgen Mihm analyzes which factors create complexity in engineering projects and how the negative effects of complexity can be mitigated. He builds a mathematical model of a complex distributed design project demonstrating how complexity inevitably arises from the interaction of simple components. He characterizes the dynamic behavior of the system analytically and with the aid of simulations, and he derives classes of managerial actions to improve performance dynamics.
