title Coordination of Distributed Design Activities: A Rule-Driven Approach
source Proceedings of the Ninth International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Futures [ISBN 0-7923-7023-6] Eindhoven, 8-11 July 2001, pp. 415-426
summary The purpose of this work is to develop effective, yet flexible, methods of coordination in support of collaborative design. This work takes a rule-driven approach to modeling process knowledge for coordination of distributed activities. In this paper, coordination knowledge is represented by a set of dependency rules that determines when, how, and by whom each activity is performed. A design coordination model called DCM is introduced in terms of the dependency rules and the activity states associated with the use of the whole range of computer applications. DCM permits coordination flexibility and allows visibility of coordination logic dealing with dynamic aspects of design processes. A web-based system prototype that implements the design coordination model is demonstrated. Opportunities for using the system prototype to aid design coordination are discussed.
