In an office working environment it is very unusual that a worker is engaged in a single task until the task is completed. Generally multitasking is the norm, so workers will belong to several project groups and work on one of the projects and then, before completing that, switch to another. Focusing on how to manage resources effectively and how to support performing tasks in the environment in which workers belong to multiple projects, this paper examines the provision of appropriate mechanisms to support a collaborative work in the environment. We suggest a method for managing resources which uses a 3-level structure which consists of sharing-level, working-level and personal-level and describe implementation of the Multi-project Support System which is capable of supporting interrelations among workers, resources and projects.
