Cooperative work includes an important human dimension. A bad apprehension of this dimension leads inevitably to the rejection of any software solution on the terrain. A good study of current usages before development, during and after development is predominant
Usage analysis is more a research topic in human sciences than in computer sciences. Our approach is to implicate potential users early in the development process (participative design) and to implicate human scientists (psychologists, educationists) in our industrial contracts to conduct experiments.
