Abstract or Description

Abstract: "This paper lists the different architectural and control alternatives that the builders of design-tool-organizations should consider. The paper also describes FORS, an environment for implementing these alternatives. FORS treats both tools and sets of data as objects. A visual programming interface is provided for the manipulation of these objects. The interface shields the user from the low level details of distributed problem solving."
