Abstract

This paper aims to identify factors, which affect both group formation and role allocation. Also to investigate evidence of cultural and personality differences and its effect on teamwork in software engineering groups. Introduce requirements for computer support for dynamic role allocation, and provide a core model for understanding the factors affecting role allocation over time. Finally to describe the development and evaluation of a prototype that demonstrates if it is feasible to consider and computationally model cultural differences between individuals while building software engineering groups and/or allocating roles between group members. The outcomes of this paper contribute within the context of computer-supported distributed team working. This paper explains dynamic role allocation and its importance in industry. It also lists the factors affecting dynamic role allocation, provides a requirement analysis for dynamic role allocation, suggests a design for support in dynamic role allocation using object-oriented methodology, and discusses the implemented and evaluated prototype.
