The layout of advanced artifacts and structures calls for the cooperation of multidiscip- nary layout groups utilizing a number of advertisement and proprietary engineering software program instruments (e.g., CAD, modeling, simulation, visualization, and optimization), engineering databases, and knowledge-based platforms. participants or person teams of mult- isciplinary layout groups often paintings in parallel and individually with a variety of en- neering software program instruments that are situated at diversified websites. additionally, person individuals will be engaged on various models of a layout or viewing the layout from diversified views, at diverse degrees of element. which will accomplish the paintings, it's important to have powerful and effective c- laborative layout environments. Such environments are usually not in simple terms automate in- vidual initiatives, within the demeanour of conventional computer-aided engineering instruments, but in addition let person participants to proportion details, collaborate, and coordinate their actions in the context of a layout undertaking. CSCW (computer-supported coope- tive paintings) in layout is worried with the advance of such environments.

Liu et al. 3 Cooperation in Sensor Networks The cooperation in the sensor networks contains two aspects. On one hand, sensor network mainly pays attention to the interaction between human and environment, it introduces quantized environmental data into human activities, and informs about the changes of environment to human. On the other hand, every node in the sensor networks is an independent individual with basic ability of cooperation. With the continuously complex calculation, the future calculation environment of sensor networks will be an open, distributed, and coordinative one.

In this model, the relationship between cooperation level and task level represents the division of works and cooperation among groups during the cooperative work, while the relationship between task level and activity level represents interaction between the sensor nodes and coordinative activities. This model can describe cooperative work among sensor nodes entirely. Fig. 3. Three-level cooperation model 5 Implementation of Application Self-reconfiguration in Sensor Networks In order to correspond to the cooperation model, we propose a cluster-based architecture for sensor network.
