A framework of network support for utilization of integrated design over the Internet has been developed. The techniques presented are also applicable for intranet/extranet. The integrated design system was initially developed for local application in a single site. With the network support, geographically dispersed designers can collaborate a design task throughout the total design process, quickly respond to clients’ requests and enhance the design agility. In this paper, after a brief introduction of the integrated design system, the network support framework is presented, followed by a description of two key techniques involved: Java Servlet approach for remotely executing a large program, and online CAD collaboration.
