Abstract:
This dissertation explores the use of Group Support Systems (GSS) to overcome operational bottlenecks in the architectural programming process which constrain user participation. To this end, both architectural programming and GSS literature are reviewed. A model is derived to support the use of GSS in architectural programming and a toolbox of GSS tools is established and validated. Within the toolbox, one new tool, GroupProgrammer, is designed, coded and validated. Three case studies are then undertaken to validate the GSS model. The case studies demonstrate a potential for GSS to balance participation in architectural programming worksessions as well as increase the overall amount of information collected. Nineteen lessons learned and four critical success factors are presented from the case studies. Five potential future directions for this research stream, both for MIS and for architecture are explored.
