Abstract:This study was conducted under the umbrella project of the Living Smart Campus at the University of Twente. The thesis tries to contribute to the theoretical base for the use of Group Decision Support Systems (GDSS). The effectiveness of the app Mmrecord, originally designed as a meeting recording and annotation tool, when used as a GDSS in order to enhance collaborators awareness of the content of their collaborators speech to promote the creation of a collaborative frame was examined. A one factorial design was applied to test the impact of the app on the discussion progress in a conjunctive design task in a face to face setting. No impact was found on the quantity of participants speech, however participants needed les propositions, arguments and counter arguments to reach more decisions in the given period of time when using the app. The app Mmrecord can be used as an effective tool to enhance the efficiency of the discussion-making process in conjunctive design tasks in face to face situations.
