Business cooperation between companies has been getting popular in the world, which has brought changes to management of business processes. inter-organizational process management is widely required, now. We propose agent-based groupware, which realizes open and distributed business system. On this groupware, agents act as interfaces between people and the business system. They also coordinate multiple jobs, people, and organizations. However, it is very difficult to introduce, evaluate, and evolve agent-based groupware, because it is very difficult to estimate and test the effect of introducing agents into the real workplace.
