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

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

Doherty et al. (2012) Collaboration in Translation: The impact of Increased Reach on Cross-organisational Work, Computer Supported Cooperative Work

After reading this paper the thing what I took from it was the description of increased reach in cross-organizational work. Commercial and technological trends in recent years have led to a

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

Grieb, J. and Lindemann, U. (2005) Providing communication media for distibuted design, ICED05

The most interesting content of this paper were the two tables that describe communication media characteristics and design situation characteristics. Matching these two will help in finding suitable communication media for

Trauth, E.M., Jessup, L.M., Understanding Computer-Mediated Discussions: Positivist and Interpretive Analyses of Group Support System Use, MIS Quarterly, 24(1), pp.43-79

This paper is a good example of an case study paper. Four Group Support System (GSS) sessions were held to discuss gender equity at a State University. Focus of the paper
