A model is proposed for computer-supported work which includes both users and tools, analysing the behaviour of a working environment including computing tools. The model analyses the overall dynamic behaviour as a process of co-evolution (which can include differentiation). Using the model, the structure of a co-evolutive support tool is outlined, and a performance indicator developed. The model is instantiated by a simple experiment in co-authoring a scientific paper.
