ASCW: an assistant for cooperative work
The Assistant for Cooperative Work (ASCW) is a powerful system for the management of distributed work. It consists of the Task Manager, the organizational information system TOSCA and the video conferencing tool LIVE. With the Task Manager, common tasks may be shared and manipulated independently by a number of people. Users may organize cooperative tasks, monitor their progress, share documents and services, and exchange messages during task performance.
