Abstract

This research presents a dialog-based framework of design team thinking and discovery that synthesizes an inquiry-based design thinking model and a con-ceptual-exploration process model. The framework is applied in order to code the dialog acts of teams engaged in conceptual design activity, and measure design team processes related to generating design alternatives and making decisions. Preliminary results highlight relationships between the two models, and support the tentative conclusion that team performance on a conceptual design task is positively correlated with the frequency of a dialogue act termed, “limit-handling.” Remaining challenges include fully integrating and validating prior models and validating dialogue facilitation techniques to support conceptual design, decision analysis, and risk analysis.
