This paper describes a research project that investigated the feasibility and advantages of using contextual reasoning to supervise the collaborative work of several knowledge workers. In complex projects that require contributions from various experts but whose interaction may be limited to a web-based collaborative tool, maintaining control of the project is essential to ensure that the project objectives are met. This is typically the job of a project manager (PM). Context-based Reasoning (CxBR) is exploited to implement control measures used by competent PMs. The paper describes the investigation and the related works involved in collaborative design project, as embodied by designing, building and launching a small sounding rocket.
