This research studies methods for providing design process support for distributed groups of designers, to allow them to collaborate and co-ordinate their actions, within the context of collaborative design. The process that allows designers to collaborate and coordinate their actions, is seen primarily as an interactive and social one. Using the proposed web-based asynchronous groupware application, designers coordinate their actions but managing what sorts of activities others expect them to perform, and by monitoring the degree of social approval that such plans acquire within the design team community.

Keywords: design coordination, design process modelling, collaborative design
