The aim of the presented research is to investigate possibilities of applying Coloured Petri Nets (CPN) modelling methodology for supporting design collaboration with a focus on iterative resolving of coupled sets of design parameters. Two case studies have been conducted aiming to build CPN based models and simulations for design development projects having several sets of not trivially coupled design parameters. Based on the results, it is concluded that CPN-based approach could bring several significant benefits comparing to common design support methods and tools.
