Nowadays, product development in automotive industry is a distributed process which involves a variety of participants with different roles. Intensive changes on product need a high communication effort, which is still carried out in face to face meetings and does not interact directly with engineering artifacts affected by these decisions. Our work aims to overcome this problem by offering a collaborative working tool which enables flexible management of information about collaboration and supports decision-making within collaborative working environment of the automotive product development.
