This paper looks at the collaborative design activity involved in a design experiment of an electromechanical plunger. Much of the coordination was achieved through Internet-based communication. As mechanical and electrical researchers involved in the design project, we discuss the information exchanges highlighted by our different professional cultures and relate how these exchanges lead us to propose some methodology to improve the efficiency of virtual meetings. Moreover, we show the need for new communication tools, ones dedicated to specific tasks that are not currently supported, especially shared concept formalization among technical experts.
