Abstract

Surveys on existing research works indicate that diagrams are better than text in modelling complex structure such as a project. When a project is modelled using a network diagram, more mental resources can be released to allow team members to formulate their project plan and actions better. Nowadays, due to the changes brought about by globalisation, project stakeholders are often physically dispersed. This article presents a graphical modelling system designed to enable geographically dispersed project stakeholders to create a network diagram collaboratively over the Internet. Under the system, users can also improve on the diagram layout collaboratively.
