The virtual design team: A computational model of project organizations

  title={The virtual design team: A computational model of project organizations},
  author={Yan Jin and Raymond E. Levitt},
  journal={Computational & Mathematical Organization Theory},
Large scale and multidisciplinary engineering projects (e.g., design of a hospital building) are often complex. They usually involve many interdependent activities and require intensive coordination among actors (i.e., designers) to deal with activity interdependencies. To make such projects more effective and efficient, one needs to understand how coordination requirements are generated and what coordination mechanisms should be applied for given project situations. Our research on the Virtual… CONTINUE READING
