title Quest for Efficiency: Examining Cognitive Processes Underlying the Use of 3D Modeling Tools
source Stouffs, Rudi and Sariyildiz, Sevil (eds.), Computation and Performance Proceedings of the 31st eCAADe Conference Volume 1, Faculty of Architecture, Delft University of Technology, Delft, The Netherlands, 18-20 September 2013, pp. 101-107
summary In this paper we examine the strategies used in 3D modeling for their efficiency. Our study explores the underlying cognitive process that drives design thinking as well the choice of strategies for using specific features in a given CAD software. We take a cognitive task analysis approach to examine our question. Of a total sample of 19 participants, the strategies of the fastest and slowest users are compared to identify areas of improvement for software development as well as user training.
