Inter-disciplinary collaboration: A case study of software development for fashion designers

Mike Scaife, Eleanor Curtis, Charlie Hill

There is an increasing involvement of different disciplines in requirements capture. However such collaboration can result in the replacement of one set of problems with another as the priorities of systems designers conflict with those of social science researchers. Here we illustrate some of these difficulties by describing the course of a project to develop a software tool for fashion designers.
