Figure 1: General awareness specification, expressed as activity heuristics and identity heuristics. This specification is application-independent.
Figure 2: Awareness relationship matrix for the hypothetical application used by retailers and suppliers. (Numbers indicate the number of participants in each role.)
Figure 3: Awareness needs in synchronous versus asynchronous applications. (“Yes” means the heuristic is applicable; “No” means the heuristic is not applicable.)
Figure 4: Awareness policy for the case study. (None of the awareness heuristics are deleted in this example, and no extra heuristics have been added. Notations to the worksheet are indicated by the Comic Sans MS font.)
