The Sequencing of product DSMs has been proposed for the identification of interdependencies and for product development planning (PDP) including components and subsystems. But, due to little exploitable outcome, this approach is hardly used in practice. A new method using an augmented DSM Sequencing algorithm with a gradient based optimizer is presented. The method considers Product Architecture Drivers to derive a suggestion for an efficient planning process and is integrated in a DSM software. Furthermore, it is validated using a combustion engine as a typical engineering product.
