Nutter, David and Boldyreff, Cornelia (2003) Historical awareness support and its evaluation in collaborative software engineering. In: WETICE 2003 - Evaluating Collaborative Information Systems and Support For Virtual Enterprises, 9-11 June 2003, Linz, Austria.
The types of awareness relevant to collaborative soft- ware engineering are identified and an additional type, "historical awareness" is proposed. This new type of awareness is the knowledge of how software artefacts re- sulting from collaboration have evolved in the course of their development. The types of awareness that different software engineer- ing environment architectures can support are discussed. A way to add awareness support to our existing OSCAR sys- tem, a component of the GENESIS software engineering platform, is proposed. Finally ways of instrumenting and evaluating the awareness support offered by the modified system are outlined.
