In this paper we present a complex elevator system design structure matrix (DSM). The DSM is created with system experts to enable solving of complex system development problems via a product DSM. This data is created to be used as a case study in a DSM design sprint. It was created to show the diversity of findings that can be ascertained from a single DSM matrix. In the spirit of open science, we present both the DSM and the design sprint to enable other researched to replicate, reproduce or otherwise build on the same source of data.
