)-- Dr. Seward was born in Buffalo, New York. He earned his B.A. at Iowa State University, his M.S. at Stanford University and his Ph.D. at the University of Wisconsin. Dr. Steward was working on the design of nuclear power plants when he conceived the DSM concept. An article written by him in 1969 was rejected by three journals but was finally published in 1981 in IEEE Transaction on Engineering Management. Another of his publications, a book titled “Systems Analysis and Management: Structure, Strategy and Design” was published in 1981. One other published work is a book titled “Software Engineering with Systems Analysis and Design.” Dr. Stewart’s work introduced the DSM concept into several aerospace companies such as Lockheed and Boeing. In 1992, Dr. Steward was invited to MIT for a semester as a visiting scholar to work on extensions of DSM with Professor Eppinger and his students. Several students completed theses based on DSM. Workshops on DSM were held at MIT in 1999 and in 2000. Attendees included people from GTE, Ford, Fiat, Visteon, Scandia, Lockheed-Martin, Boeing and Pratt & Whitney among others. They are now applying DSM concepts mostly in engineering. DSM is referred to as the Information Dependency Method to indicate its broader application to business as well as to engineering.
