A synthetic subjective preference model for collaborative design partner selection is formulated, which contains prior preference and adjustable preference. Algorithms based on personality and history data are proposed to calculate these two preferences. The model and the algorithm are effectively supplements to current objective indices and can be used combined with the objective indices to make the selection more reasonable.
