In most institutions today, product development is done by teams of designers. No matter which kind of product is developed, there is a strong need for the designers to closely cooperate. the spectrum of cooperation is quite broad. It ranges from non-structured, ad-hoc cooperation over less-structured and less-guided cooperation schemes to very well structured and predefined collaboration schemes up to asynchronous, message-based cooperation. the broad range of cooperation patterns is addressed by several communities, most prominently by the CSCW and workflow communities.
