The development of complex systems involves many activities which are performed concurrently by different people. While individual developers maintain their own partial knowledge of problem and solution domains and are capable of manipulating this knowledge locally, they must also interact together intermittently in order to achieve common goals. We call such interaction “interworking”. While interworking is an activity that takes place between people, we use the term “interoperability” to describe interactions between the computer-based tools that these people use.
