  • Design Whodunit: the relationship between individual characteristics and interaction behaviour in design concept generation

Edelman, Jonathan Antonio, Jablokow, Kathryn, Sonalkar, Neeraj, Mabogunje, Ade and Leifer, Larry, 2017, Conference or Workshop, Design Whodunit: the relationship between individual characteristics and interaction behaviour in design concept generation at ASME 2017 International Design Engineering Technical Conferences & Computers and Information in Engineering Conference IDETC2017, Cleveland Ohio USA, 6-9 August 2017.

Abstract or Description:

This paper investigates the relationship between interaction behaviors and the cognitive characteristics of participating individuals in engineering design teams engaged in concept generation. Individual characteristics are measured using the Kirton Adaption Innovation inventory, which assesses cognitive preference for seeking and responding to change. Team interactions are measured using the Interaction Dynamics Notation, which allows for interaction behavior to be quantitatively analyzed. A correlation analysis reveals statistically significant correlation between individual characteristics and specific interaction behaviors. A sequence analysis of the team data also reveals specific interaction sequences associated with a greater probability of idea occurrence in team interaction. These findings could be taken as a first step towards building a cognitive-behavioral model of engineering design team performance.
