Abstract

Investigates the dual relationship between systems and their users in the context of information systems. Summarizes the result as system‐user duality, which contains two facets: multiple‐user views on a single logical system, and a single physical system adapted to multiple‐user models. Not only gives a better understanding on the role of users in systems, but also suggests an important principle of designing systems adapted to user models
