In view of the complexity of multi-disciplinary team collaborative innovation design process, the quantitative design of cognitive research can be realized by putting forward to deconstruct design complex cognitive space based on the complex linkography-network model. This thesis builds a complex linkography-network model for the complexity of the design of cognitive forms, and describes complex design cognition from the perspective of process and content, and then extracts the characteristics of cognitive process based on the essence of the cognition, and uses a rational analysis to structural decomposition of cognitive complexity. Cognitive instances are used to analysis and verify the validity of the characteristics of expression. This study provides the possibility for manifesting the complex relationship of implicit cognition and the intelligent diagnosis for design cognitive research.
