Summary

One of the main advantages claimed for software design patterns is improved team communication. This paper reports on an experiment that tests this hypothesis. Team communication among pairs of designers with and without design pattern knowledge is observed in a maintenance setting and analyzed by protocol analysis. The results indicate that shared pattern knowledge leads to a more condensed explanation phase and a balanced give-and-take among team members during design work.
