Abstract

The aim of this paper is to explore different aspects of information-related activities in product development teams. To enable analysis of information behaviour at lower level of process granularity and to allow longer data collection with several participants, work sampling self-reporting approach was selected as an appropriate one for data collection. After analysis of processes in two case companies, results demonstrated diversity and frequency of information-related activities within different product development contexts, but also indicated differences in individual information behaviour.

Keywords: information behaviour, design activities, work sampling, information flow, teamwork
