Understanding collaboration in team design, task-oriented interactions
This paper presents a part of the methodology used in a broader study that aims to describe, analyze and evaluate the face-to-face interactions of teams that codesign online courses. Specifically,
Usefulness and needs construction process in innovative software: an exploratory study of designers’ viewpoints
This paper explores how the usefulness and needs construction are currently considered in design literature and by different designers’ profiles through their viewpoints and suggests that viewpoints are often specific to a designer profile because of specialized literature, professions and background.
Towards describing co-design by the integration of Engineering Design and Technology and Innovation Management literature
The purpose of this paper is to provide an overview of the available literature concerning the understanding and improvement of co-design processes. The most pertinent aspects of such processes are
The interplay between quality of collaboration, design project evolution and outcome in an architectural design studio
ABSTRACT This paper addresses the issue of collaboration dynamics in design by examining, in a longitudinal setting, how quality of collaboration and design co-evolve during a real design studio in
A global approach of the Intermediary object: A case study in virtual environment
This paper introduces the concept and the roles of IOs and proposes a framework to define a structure for these objects and presents a convergence step between 3 actors about a vehicle’s cockpit design using a virtual reality (VR) platform.
A Heuristic Structure for Collaborative Design
ABSTRACT While designing new products and services in the industrial age has always been a collective process, the term collaborative design (CD) has become increasingly popular within design
Professional perspectives on collaborative design work
Collaboration has become more important owing to the challenges designers face to compete in fast-paced global markets. Designers need to capitalise on the strengths of different stakeholders to
Ideologically-Embedded Design: Community, collaboration and artefact
A framework for the study of external representations in collaborative design settings


Negotiation in collaborative assessment of design solutions: an empirical study on a Concurrent Engineering process
Cognitive ergonomics research work is conducted during the definition phase of an aeronautical design project in which the participants work in Concurrent Engineering, finding a typical temporal negotiation process.
A process-oriented approach to design rationale
We propose an approach to design rationale (DR) that emphasizes supporting the design process in such a way that a trace of the rationale is captured with little disruption of the normal process. We
Small Group Design Meetings: An Analysis of Collaboration
Details of how real groups engage in a representative collaborative task - early software design meetings - are presented to provide detailed knowledge about how groups work, what they do well, and what they have trouble with.
Argumentation-based design rationale: what use at what cost?
This analysis of argumentation research sets an agenda for future work driven by a concern to support the designer in the whole process of externalizing and structuring DR, from initially ill-formed ideas to more rigorous, coherent argumentation.
A computer-based design history tool
The Design History Tool is a computerized design history that represents and plays back important information generated during the process of designing a mechanical system that supports design understanding, communication, and redesign.
Quantitative Measurements of the Influence of Participant Roles during Peer Review Meetings
This paper presents an approach based on protocol analysis for quantifying the influence of participant roles during PRMs, and suggests that PRMs could be improved by creating three different types of reviews, each of which collects together specific roles.
Cognitive processes and ill-defined problems: a case study from design
A protocol of problem solving in architectural design and its analysis is presented and the significant difference between well-and ill-defined problem solving is shown to be a specification process similar to information retrieval processes now studied in artificial intelligence.
