Computer-Supported Collaborative Design (CSCD) technologies can enable teams to collaborate across boundaries. Emerging research documents the potential of CSCD technologies to contribute towards successful collaborative design, however, no model exists to define the relationship between a successful design activity and CSCD factors which influence its success. This paper utilises a systematic literature review to categorise known CSCD factors, categorise and characterise them, and applies this knowledge towards developing an established design activity model to include CSCD factors.
