Def. according to Del 2.2:
"High-level requirements are analysed and grouped according to the nature of data processing they require. A tool is chosen (in the case of existing tool that are identified to potentially fulfill the desired requirements) or developed to cope with each coherent set of HLRs. It is usually made of basic components, which functions (services) are specified, developed and tested individually. They are then integrated in the tool; which is a software piece that implements a meaningful user interaction. However, KP-Lab tools are meant to be components of KP-Lab system, although they can work autonomously. Precisely, they interact with various other components and services (e.g. such user management, knowledge middleware). Integration within KP-Lab system is therefore required It requires integration with other tools."
