Abstract

This industrial paper describes development of an automatic vending machine with emphasis on the percentage of using various communication technologies. It was decided to use development done by a virtual team that would also include a couple of students. The presented case indicates that virtual team members should have appropriate technical and professional competencies. They should have an introductory face-to-face meeting, they should have good command of ICT use and should follow a systematic developmental process. These findings are in line with the findings of many virtual team studies.
