This paper describes an approach to collaborative design which focuses on the effects of individual activities on the overall design process. We utilize a new process modeling tool to define the process and then analyze and refine the process based on critical paths. This information is then shared over the Internet with all participants. The goal of this system is to detect critical errors at initial design stage and guide the designers to make better decisions based on the knowledge of the overall process. This system enables participating designers to publish his local process through an Internet bulletin board. Other members of the team can then provide feedback based on how the proposed process impacts their activities. The system provides a context-rich, persistent forum for collecting, preserving, and refining corporate expertise of the team. For example, designers can select any process from the bulletin board and use it as a template for his current project and then use it to maintain his own design history. This paper is based on the process modeling concepts of Design Roadamap and describe several key extensions in the area of CPM calculations and collaborative interfaces.
