I will work with Dr. Panchal and Dr. Bilionis from Purdue University to organize a workshop on The ASME 2017 International Design Engineering Technical Conferences & Computers and Information in Engineering Conference in August at Cleveland, Ohio. This workshop is about “Lab Experiments on Individual and Interactive Decision Making in Design“. When registering this conference, please consider to attend our workshop if you are interested.
Abstract: Decision-making is at the core of engineering design. While there has been significant progress in using normative theories to support design decision making, the use of experimental methods for decision making in design is relatively recent. The goal of this workshop is to provide a platform for discussion of the state-of-the-art research of human-subject experiments on understanding individual as well as the interactive decision-making in engineering design. The workshop has four learning objectives: a) understanding the benefits and challenges in using controlled lab experiments in design research, b) understanding the process of designing lab experiments with human subjects, c) learning statistical techniques for analyzing behavioral data, and d) gaining familiarity with modern software platforms for conducting lab experiments in interactive decision.
