More complexity in product design begets more coordination challenges in the development and fabrication of products. In this research, we posit that effective management of dependencies requires a good understanding of how dependencies constrain (or facilitate) the work in product development projects. Without characterizing in detail the differences between dependencies, it is difficult, if not impossible, to determine how they can be managed, compromising the effectiveness and efficiency of the execution of the project. In this paper, we present a dependency taxonomy designed from a literature review conducted from a multifaceted perspective, followed by a case study to demonstrate its applicability. Managerial insights and further research areas are also discussed.
