Data was collected from a designer study and a protocol study where participants were asked to create function structure models using a seed model provided to them. This seed model was generated using three chaining methods: forward chaining, backward chaining, or nucleation; and the models were also created to a certain level of completion (10%, 40% or 80%). The resulting models will be analyzed using a count of functions and flows in the model as well as a previously developed scoring method. The aim of this comparison is to investigate whether the different chaining methods yield different results, as well as identify if the participants are more inclined to use a specific chaining method.
