This is the first of a two-part paper introducing a risk-based global coordination system in a distributed environment for collaborative design. Part I presents the basic concepts and a theoretical framework, and Part II describes the implementation and practical application to a National Science Foundation supported collaborative network. In a distributed environment, local negotiations within a stakeholder group (intra-stakeholder) and global negotiations among stakeholders (inter-stakeholder…

An investigation of constraint-based risk management for collaborative design

In the context of internationally challenging economic, design has been regarded as a key factor in assisting design and manufacturing companies to survive. By using up-to-date computer-supported

Collaborative risk management: a systematic literature review

TLDR
A new definition for CRM is provided; a holistic approach in extending collaboration to SCRM is proposed; a new capability is identified; and a range of theories are provided to broaden the theoretical scope for future research on CRM.

Collaborative product development: a literature overview

While recent literature underlines the importance of collaborations in product development, and many studies analyse its applications, this subject is constantly developing and has the potential to

A constraint-based Design Risk Management tool for design collaboration

  • 2011
TLDR
This tool has been prototyped to show that design managers can use this tool to gain overall design risks during a product design process for their decision-making and meanwhile it enables other designers to involve in this risk management process and provide first-hand information on dependency of risk factors, the possibility of therisk-happening and the severity of the risk factors.

A Generic Conceptual Model for Risk Analysis in a Multi-agent Based Collaborative Design Environment

TLDR
An effective approximation technique named Risk Assessment Matrix is adopted to evaluate risk level and rank priority after probability quantification and consequence validation and an Intelligent Data based Reasoning Methodology is expanded to deal with risk mitigation.

Education in the basic sciences occurs primarily in the freshman and sophomore years. Engineering science is introduced at the sophomore year and continues through to graduation with a combination of

A Risk-based Global Coordination System in a Distributed Product Development Environment for Collaborative Design, Part II, Application

TLDR
The case study shows that globally consistent, quantitative risk analysis with considerations of all stakeholders' assessments provides a basis for them to understand each other better and help build up consensus for success of the collaborative design project.

A Principle-Agent Model for Distributed, Collaborative Design Negotiation

TLDR
A principal-agent model for negotiation is proposed that incorporates a penalty induced negotiation (PIN) mechanism that decomposes the collaborative design into a sequence of decision making stages and uses a multi-attribute utility based approach to penalize design agents that violate global constraints.

Risk-Based Resource Allocation for Collaborative System Design in Distributed Environment

TLDR
A Risk-based Distributed Resource Allocation Methodology (R-DRAM) is developed to help system manager allocate limited resource to stakeholders, and further to components of the targeted system for the maximum global risk reduction.

Supporting Negotiations in the Early Stage of Large-Scale Mechanical System Design

The development of large-scale mechanical systems involves interactive negotiations among nontechnical and technical design stakeholders. Usually, two types of negotiations exist: (i) those between

A Project Task Coordination Model for Team Organization in Concurrent Engineering

TLDR
The result shows that the proposed model is not only capable of coordinating the entire project tasks but also helpful in organizing project teams, to provide a structural foundation for the efficient team organization in concurrent engineering.

Handling Multiple Objectives in Decentralized Design

TLDR
A critical review of standard techniques to modeling and solving decentralized design problems is proposed, and a method based on set-based design is proposed to alleviate some of these challenging issues.

Network Structure and Knowledge Transfer: The Effects of Cohesion and Range

TLDR
It is proposed that social cohesion around a relationship affects the willingness and motivation of individuals to invest time, energy, and effort in sharing knowledge with others and that the network range, ties to different knowledge pools, increases a person's ability to convey complex ideas to heterogeneous audiences.

A Formal Two-Phase Method for Decomposition of Complex Design Problems

TLDR
This paper presents a formal two-phase decomposition method for complex design problems that are represented in an attribute-component incidence matrix that decouples the overall decomposition process into two separate, autonomous function components: dependency analysis and matrix partitioning, which are algorithmically achieved by an extended Hierarchical Cluster Analysis and a Partition Point Analysis.
