EVALUATION AND APPLICATION OF CREATIVITY COLLABORATION SUPPORT SYSTEM GUNGEN DX II FOR CONSENSUS-BUILDING AMONG USERS
We have developed a creativity collaboration support system, called GUNGEN, which supports the KJ method. The KJ method is one of the popular idea generation methods in Japan, like brainstorming. This method consists of four steps: entering ideas, grouping ideas, structuring groups, and writing composition. We have used about one hundred idea labels in the experiments. Several hundred labels are optimal to improve the results of the KJ method. However, long time is necessary to group more labels. Therefore, we have developed GUNGEN DX II for several hundred labels. GUNGEN DX II has a special function to group labels easily and efficiently. The feature for grouping labels is to restrict time and to operate easily. The function generates islands from the common parts of each user's groups automatically by majority decision. We have carried out the KJ method and compared it with the previous system. Even if the number of labels increased, the time required to group labels decreased by about 30%.
