AbstractThe purpose of the proposed research is to model the verification and coordination processes taking place in design. This model will predict the performance of design project teams using discrete event simulation of their information processing and communication behavior. The output of the simulation will include statistical performance measures of verification and coordination, as well as project duration and personnel cost. The model of verification and coordination processes will use these measures to suggest changes to the organizational structure and information processing tools of the project design team.
