Abstract

The aim of this paper is to explore the applicability of Information Processing Theory (IPT) for understanding empirical designer activity in the early design stages. Critically we investigate the relationship between uncertainty perception, information seeking, and knowledge exchange in design teams using an experimental study of student engineers. Ultimately the results show that IPT is indeed a useful theory and we highlight a number of key implications for the field.

Keywords: empirical study, information-processing theory, design behaviour, uncertainty perception
