Abstract
In times of increasing globalization and high customer demands, product development in the automotive industry is becoming more and more decentralized. Consequently, cooperation between en-terprises must be enhanced and deepened. This cannot be handled by conventional telecommunication technology alone. An increase in work efficiency and productivity can be reached by telecooperation, i.e. computer-supported teamwork. This paper compares conventional cooperation processes and tele-cooperation in the framework of an extended efficiency analysis. It could be shown that telecoopera-tion reduces both costs and time of cooperation processes and enhances the subjectively-felt quality of information and work results.
