Abstract

Our previous research identified clear business benefits and the need for an intelligent information flow algorithm that could match information delivery requirements for mobile workers to the capability of the delivery networks. The primary mechanism in our model, which acts a delivery system to the algorithm, essentially involves the matching of the user’s context against a previously documented workflow process model. However, in designing such a system it is important to determine whether it can withstand all scenarios. In this paper, we set out a series of key questions that should be asked of the design of any context-aware distributed system. From these answers, we postulate how the model we have developed can be enhanced to accommodate them.
