Project Team Formation Based on Knowledge and Cooperation Degree


Article Preview

To aim at the project team formation problem, this study proposes a formation model based on knowledge and cooperation degree. The ability of individual member and cooperation degree of team members are considered. In addition ,it presents a way of measuring candidate’s ability about knowledge, and establishes a collaborative model to measure the cooperation degree between team members. Furthermore, a calculation method of knowledge and cooperation degree is proposed, and then a mathematical model is established. Finally it presented a solution base on Genetic Algorithm for this model.
