Abstract: The design of complex systems is a challenge, yet validation of muchneeded new tools is difficult, and must address sociotechnical team interactions. The recent availability of pervasive sensors has allowed the creation of a “design experiment” platform to bring empirical data to the field. We seek to holistically characterize teams’ design work, in narrative form, to uncover fundamental teamwork design behavior. Thus, this work integrates disparate data to create “mapping rules” from sensors to story. We find promising sensor-derived stories.
