The Cognitive Complexity in Modelling the Group Decision Process

Constantin-Bălă Zamfirescu, Luminiţa Duţă, Barna Iantovics

Abstract


The paper investigates for some basic contextual factors (such
us the problem complexity, the users' creativity and the problem space complexity) the cognitive complexity associated with modelling the group decision processes (GDP) in e-meetings. The analysis is done by conducting a socio-simulation experiment for an envisioned collaborative software tool that acts as a stigmergic environment for modelling the GDP. The simulation results revels some interesting design guidelines for engineering some contextual functionalities that minimize the cognitive complexity associated with modelling the GDP.

Keywords
