Today, there exists a wide range of computer tools that can be used to facilitate distributed cooperation across organizations and countries. In this article we present prescriptive approaches for a kind of distributed cooperation which we choose to call distributed concurrent design. This approach is based on industrial concurrent design and computer-supported cooperative work, and we draw particularly on communication, collaboration, coordination, and awareness as key components and a platform for applicable distributed cooperation. We argue that cooperation is made up of communication, collaboration, and coordination, and that awareness is important for the interaction between these components. We describe these four components in detail and outline a plan for the development of a framework for establishment of such distributed environments. The article is based on an ongoing R&D project in which distributed cooperation among several European partner institutions is a key issue.
