Introduction

Problem New products are continuously being designed by engineers all over the world. 

Collaboration is an integral part of the process by which these engineers develop a particular design. Once the design process has been completed, documentation is compiled for each product. This documentation describes all of the physical aspects of the product for future reference. However, the documentation is deficient in explaining why the engineers choose to make any particular decisions during development of that product. Any future engineers wishing to build upon the same product are at a disadvantage because they must now invest time and money into rediscovering why the original engineers designed the product a particular way. Several resources could have been better utilized if the design rationale of the original engineers would have been archived in some sort of repository for future reference.
