Jaanu, T. et al. (2012) Effects of Four Distances on Communication Processes in Global Software Projects, ESEM’12

Media Synnchronicity Theory is used as a base for investigating four different distances to communication in software engineering projects. The distances are geographical, temporal, cultural and organization distance. Organization distance refers

Lindgren, H. (2012) Knowledge Artifacts as Tools to Communicate and Develop Knowledge in Collaborative User-Driven Design, CBMS 2012

This paper had some of the keywords I use, but was little bit off my topic. It is focused on development of ICT-tools that help collaboration and care in clinical context

Eckert, C.M et al. (2000) Intelligent support for communication in design teams: garment shape specifications in knitwear industry, Design Studies, 21, pp. 99-112

The papers looks at how intelligent design support system can help translate designers incomplete and inconsistent specifications into correct representation. The design is handed over from designer to the technicians whi

Boujut, J-F., Hisarciklilar, O., (2012) Using a semiotic classification to characterise objects involved in collaborative design, Journal of Design Research, 10 (3), pp. 155-169

In cooperative design communication shifts from asynchronous to synchronous. Paper studies annotations (mostly in 2D and 3D product representations) as means to support design communication. Segmentation between expertise (design & manufacturing)

Murthy et al. (2003) Decision making performance of interacting groups: an experimental investigation of the effects of task type and communication mode, Information & Management, 40, pp.351-360

As do many of the research done in the field of computer-mediated communication (CMC), this paper relies on testing with student groups. Goal of the paper was to compare the fit

Leino, S.-P., Pulkkinen, A. (2012) Design for Human – Virtual Engineering is a Media for Knowledge Transfer, Design2012

Paper describes how virtual engineering can help in knowledge transfer during product life-cycle. It argues that virtual environments can help in bidirectional product life-cycle communication. Product data is looked at different

Ostergaard et al. (2005) An experimental methodology for investigating communication in collaborative design review meetings, CoDesign, 1(3), pp. 169-185

Student groups were used to test different communication media in distributed design reviews. The tested media were face-to-face communication, audio and text (chat). The results show that the text based solution

Maher, M.L. & Simoff, S.J. (2000), Collaboratively Designing within the Design, Collaborative Design: Proceedings of CoDesigning 2000, ed. L.J. Ball, Springer-Verlag, London, UK, pp. 391.

Paper looks at design meeting in a virtual world with avatars. 20% of design communication during the meeting is used on clarification of the idea, 17% to task introduction and 16%
