Computer Supported Co-operative Work (CSCW) systems are complex, yet no computer-based tools of any sophistication exist to support their development. Since several people often need to work together on the same project simultaneously, the computer system often proves to be a bottleneck. CSCW tools are a means of allowing several users to work towards their goal. Systems development is essentially a team process, yet support for CSCW on these systems is in its infancy.
