Dynamics Of State-Problems and Design Intermediate Objects in Distributed And Collaborative Design Process
The implementation of multi-agents systems aided collaborative and distributed design requires a deeper understanding of the real interactions between actors, inside multidisciplinary teams. In this view, the implementation of these systems requires to observe, to model and to analyze this process with finer granularities levels. This paper presents an approach of collaborative and distributed design process analysis based on the modeling of interactions between actors during this process. The approach consists in discerning, from the real interactions, the relationship between the state-problems and the dynamics of design intermediate objects (DIO) in the computer mediated collaborative and distributed design process. The analysis of state-problems, in a real design process experience shows that the dynamics of the state problems has the influence on dynamics of DIOs.
