The Think Aloud Experiment of the Designing Process of an Expert
Knowledge acquisition is the first step in building an expert system. However, it is very difficult to find out the problem-solving approaches from a human expert completely and correctly. Here we implemented the Think-aloud experiment with an expert in architecture. By coding and analyzing the designing process, other researchers could proceed our research and find out the cognitive models corresponded to the approaches and strategies of how experts solved the problems encountered during the normal designing process.
