The potential usefulness of dynamic system models in the evaluation of the development of telecommunications has been investigated by a multidisciplinary team. A dynamic model of northwest Ontario was constructed and tested, while some work has been done towards the construction of models of individual communities within this same region. All these models are based on extensive study and field work by the multidisciplinary team. A major feature is a detailed discussion of how sustained multidisciplinary cooperation was developed during the course of the project, with a special emphasis on the informal coordination appropriate to the conduct of such work, which was on a relatively small overall scale, but involved six different disciplines in a university environment.
