This paper demonstrates how activity theoretic concepts
can be used in conjunction with an ethnographically
informed approach to derive requirements on a work
situation. We present a case study based on a series of
collaborative design episodes, the structured description
derived from it and show how a preliminary set of
contextually-grounded requirements on supporting the
design process can be created.
