Supporting Group Awareness in Collaborative Design
Different from multi-user database management systems, CSCW system must support group awareness explicitly, namely that participants should perceive the presence of each other during the process of cooperating, which is essential to effective collaboration. In this paper we firstly analyze and compare several means of supporting sensibility, then investigate the model of collaborative design and suggest achieving group awareness by product data whichforms thefoundation of relationshipamong designers. The infomation model and the shared workspace organization of CECAD (Collaborative Environmentfor Computer-Aided Design, a prototype system we developed) are presented and its group awareness supporting mechanism is described in succession.
