This work presents an example from an ethnographic investigation of one particular organisation, and introduces a mechanism, which is called “Perspectives,” for dealing with it, which uses the process description to provide an index into the history of a document moving through a process.
Towards a Methodology Employing Critical Parameters to Deliver Performance Improvements in Interactive Systems
It is argued that application-specific critical parameters, i.e., performance parameters that measure how well the system serves its purpose, can provide a basis for dealing with performance issues in design.
Extending the Services and the Accessibility of Community Networks
This paper presents the Campiello system, an enhanced information services and complementary user interfaces to better serve the community network objectives, which is obtained by introducing collaborative filtering functions to support easier navigation in the information space of the community.
