The concept is to develop an online environment for collaborated web projects where each participating team member can efficiently communicate and interact with other team members utilizing an integrated web information archiving and accessing systems that optimize the overall scheme of the information deployment and progress verification process pertaining to the development of the web project.
In this environment, team members are able to archive related information and associated assets in web-based projects, such as, descriptive documents, reference links, technical notes, design templates, images, graphics, and communication between participants. They also can see the process, compare initial plans against the current progress, review the history of files and tasks, and avoid unnecessary redesigns. Several functional and necessary system components are available in this environment to increase productivity (e.g. document creating system, file management system, scheduling system, search engines, message board, emailing and simple instant message, and automatic backup systems).
By enabling members to freely access information and resources to update themselves and view the progress of the project development, communication breakdowns can be minimized and a significant overall improvement can be made. In addition, this particular structural design offers greater range of flexibility and applicability. The design is not only good for accessing and archiving information but is also good for members retroactively learning critical project-related tasks, accomplishments, and examining communication archives - especially when he or she happens to return from long break or absence.
