Abstract
Providing efficient, naturally-to-use environments for simultaneous product development is one of the challenges that the CSCW community will face. In this paper a framework is proposed which enables engineering designers to represent their knowledge in a natural way and beyond provides the opportunity to synchronize it with cooperation partners. This paper especially addresses the goal awareness issue in distributed cooperative work settings and how it can be supported by a cognitive engineering approach. For this purpose an empirical case study with a software prototype of a product design environment was conducted. First results presented here include typical cooperation channels within the experimental setting.
