Providing awareness in complex cooperation networks
Cooperation networks require infrastructures for the continuous exchange of knowledge. The larger and more complex such networks become, the more important are sophisticated tools that help keeping track of other actors and artefacts. We introduce the SWAPit activity monitor which goes beyond simple notification mechanisms. The system offers multiple views supporting daily-work's tasks as well as comprehensive analyses of cooperation activities. The initial system design is investigated and revised in a real-world project setting.
