Contribution based priority assessment in a web based intelligent argumentation network for collaborative software development
"Decision making is an important aspect of the collaborative software development process which usually involves complex process of conflict resolution. Stakeholders approach decision making process from multiple perspectives and their priorities play a vital role in it. The priority assessment methods used in the argumentation process so far are usually static. Priorities remain constant throughout the decision making process. In order to make the collaborative system more closely replicate real-world scenarios, this work incorporates dynamic priority assessment into a web-based collaborative system which is based on intelligent computational argumentation. It evaluates priorities dynamically for each cycle of decision process based on contribution of individual participant. The contribution is assessed based on the impact of each participant's arguments on a winning design alternative. More successful participants have higher priorities in argumentations during collaboration. An empirical case study is conducted to evaluate effectiveness of dynamic priority assessment in improving quality of the argumentation based decision making"--Abstract, page iii.
