In the modern globar market and manufacturing environment, industries have to put more focus on reducing time to market while reducing production costs on the development of new products. Collaborative product development is a growing trend that is being used to answer some of that problem. However, literature research has revealed that there are only a small number of researches that has talked about cooperative CAD systems. This paper will try to show that this type of system can be used in the conceptual-embodiment design phase while encouraging creative solutions from the designers involved. It will also list some functional requirements and areas of interest for these type of system that has been identified by this research at the time of writing.
