Abstract

As the result of the first phase of building a computational laboratory which is aimed to enable detail study of the emergent team properties and team behaviour in product development, this paper focuses on the design of a computational representation of a member of product development team. Since team members are often faced with the necessity to adjust to changes in their environment, the emphasis was put on modelling of human adaptive capacity. Specifically, the paper brings together the theoretical findings on mechanisms individuals use when faced with disruptions and introduces the architecture of an adaptable agent that can be used for studying adaptation of product development team. Building on the findings from psychology, sociology and cognitive science, the proposed agents are defined as cognitive, situated, affective and social. The proposed computational workbench is aimed to augment understanding of team processes prior, and in response to adaptation triggers in the context of product development projects, and should enable anticipation of possible pitfalls, enhance the development of design methodologies and tools, and provide guidelines for design education.
