English abstract:
This paper tries to understand different settings for coordination depending on interdependencies between activities carried out by team members. By applying coordination theories and investigating real work settings in multimedia production companies, we introduce the concept of {\em artifact-based coordination}. It is defined as a kind of coordination in organizations, which is mainly initiated, handled and negotiated by means of artifacts. Artifacts are permanent symbolic constructs that act as mediators of the coordination. They are used to clarify ambiguities and to settle disputes. They mediate articulation work by acting as an intermediary with a specific material format between actors. Artifacts can be of different types like specialized, material, visual, coordinative, common and multilayered. The artifact-centred view to coordinative work practices helps to clarify dependencies, structures and dynamics in organizations around a design project.
