Abstract:
Office work consists largely of cooperative efforts by numbers of people. To support such work, applications programs can be designed as "multi-person" systems organized around notions of "roles" and "working relationships." A group of co-workers can then describe to the system their agreed upon roles in a project as well as the working relationships among those roles. Based on this description, application software can provide support for communications protocols and access control modified so that the software will continue to meet the needs of the users.
