The primary intent of this study is to identify what first-level technical supervisors perceive as the causes of uncertainty in their design work. The projects studied involved prototype designs by groups of engineers. Sources of uncertainty were defined as factors, including interpersonal relations, which caused group leaders to see more than one possible outcome to decisions during the problem-solving process of design.
