This paper provides a very brief overview of AMODEUS (Assimilating Models Of DEsigners Users and Systems), an Esprit Basic Research Action. The focus of the collaboration was the development of interdisciplinary methods and concepts for studying interactions between users and systems offering long-term implications for interface design and development. The project made a number of specific advances in cognitive modelling; in system modelling; in studies of designer reasoning; and in representing design spaces and issues. More importantly, the project led to a number of clear conclusions concerning the effective ways to think about the functional integration of information from different sources.
