Collaborative Negotiation


Goal

Develop systematic methods to establish optimal strategies to guide design team interactions and to manage design conflicts raised from these interactions.

Approach

  • Game-theoretic modeling of collaborative design activities
  • Establishment of conflict management strategies for mechatronic design problems

DecisionNet Architecture:

  • Providers/developers of decision support objects
    • register with broker
    • provide metadata
  • Broker(s)
    • compiles metadata into a catalog
    • supports search to respond to consumer queries with varying degrees sophistication
    • returns executable plans (an ordered collection of services)
  • Users
    • use broker to search and retrieve resources/computational plans
    • use broker to execute resources to solve problem
    • computational objects in the repository

Impact

  • Theoretical foundations for new software tools to support collaboration and negotiation activities
  • Contributions toward understanding the science of design
  • Techniques for trade-off analysis in mechatronic systems design
