Abstract
Proposes the artifact as theory perspective which drwas together models of scientific practice and design behaviour and in so doing, offers the view of any information technology system as a conjecture on the part of the design team of human and organizational requirements to be met. By adopting this perspective, information system design can be seen as an ill structured problem best tacked by user centred theories and methods. Outlines this perspective, emphasizing the need for convergence of views at the outset of design, and demonstrating the advantages it offers to both the theory and practice of technology design and the fields of information science
