The development of Knowledge Based Systems for Engineering Design requires the capture, reuse and tracking of various kinds of design knowledge throughout the entire design process. Software engineering and Knowledge engineering principles have been used in the development of knowledge based systems. These techniques are primarily applied in capturing and reusing the engineering knowledge. This paper proposes applying Design Structure Matrix (DSM) as a complementary methodology for not only capture and reuse, but also in analysing the impact of design changes and for managing the requirements and design rules. Lattix DSM tool has been used for tracking and managing various types of design knowledge during the entire lifecycle of the design process. This methodology works in conjunction with existing software engineering and knowledge engineering techniques and is applied to Aerospace design process.
