It has been proposed that the collaborative working environments have been created by the computing assistance for human behaviors with the instructions of related information and items. The purpose of this study is to propose the collaboration mechanism and the environments constrained by the roles. The basic principle at issue in this studies is that all members should behave autonomously, and behave collaboratively with understanding the surrounding environments. We have already presented the Distributed Collaborative Computing architecture called Noah that has the concept of field with tupple space. On this mechanism, we designed the role-based cooperative work environments on the collaboration and coordination mechanism. We applied this mechanism to the typical models in the industrial system's domain.
