The purpose of the Artifacts System is to structure complex, evolving data, to assist users in their cooperative effort to develop such data, and to integrate the tools that operate on and produce this data. A key element in the design is to eliminate what is the usual interaction with a computer-based system run a tool to achieve a desired effect. Rather, users of the Artifacts System set up structures that indicate desired results and browse these structures in hypertext-like fashion tool invocation is usually implicit. Version and configuration management is an integral part of the system, not a facility on the side.
