Co-Operation Platform For Distributed Product Development 2001-01-3464
In this paper the ongoing work on a cross-platform, cross-device co-operation software, that is being developed in the basic research project “Rapid Product Development” (funded by the Deutsche Forschungs-gesellschaft), is presented.
Rapid Product Development (RPD) is characterised by a target-oriented use of prototypes, rapid iteration cycles and the employment of self-organising, often distributed, teams. The demand for co-ordination and communi-cation between these development teams is typically very high.
Objective of the software development is to reflect a “real life” RPD working environment and support distributed teams in the development process.
