As the support for creative design of complex products, multi-disciplinary team design has always been the focus of researches on design. By taking language as the data resource in design, a multi-dimensional model called linkage which represents the design process in dimensions of the time, the math and the space is proposed. On the basis of traditional research, the process of team design has been transformed into the forms of linkograph, colored-linkograph, matrix and network. Defining the colored-linkograph, the code vector and the link matrix, and introducing the clustering of network, the multi-dimensional representation of the whole design process can be realized. This model disruptively reconstructed the representation of design cognition space and realized the data-driven reasoning and visualization.

Keywords: Design Cognition, Computational Design Synthesis, Collaborative Design, Industrial Design
