Abstract

The paper discusses the value of researching team mental models in design to overcome potential difficulties in collaboration. The authors present an overview of the existing literature on team mental models and suggest a model by which the underlying cognitive processes that are inherent to designers can be studied. This model covers four main types of mental models: task, process, team, and competence. Based on previous research in other domains, a framework for measuring mental models of team members in design collaboration is presented. Finally, the basic outline of a categorization scheme assessing the underlying cognitive structures relevant to the model is discussed and the benefits of this behavioural analysis are elaborated.
