Complex and large-scale engineering design problems require a collaborative approach in order to be completed in a timely manner. Designers involved in such work are making collaborative design decision, and often have to negotiate to address intricate problems and resolve their discrepancies while exploring the design space, generating new ideas and compromising for agreement. Advances in negotiation research have been made in social psychology, distributed artificial intelligence, and decision theory, but few have been applied to design. We advocate that design context information is of paramount importance in the decision-making process. In this paper, an argumentation-based negotiation model is introduced to support collaborative design decision-making. This model relies on clear design context model, argument model, negotiation protocol and strategies. In this paper, we successively detail each of these components and conclude with a discussion on a real-world case example and our future research direction.
