This paper presents the development of a quantitative method to study team designing processes. It revisits linkograhy – a graphical representation of the design moves – and depicts ways of interpreting the linkography using entropy from Shannon’s information theory, to compare design processes. A case study with two different scenarios is presented followed by the results and conclusions.
