This paper reports on a study of practitioners in engineering design striving to transform their work practices so as to be able to cope with complex interdependencies across global production networks. As a key feature of these budding coordinative practices, practitioners are trying to build computational ʻmodels' of the ʻdesign space' of their enterprise. The paper examines the difficulties they face in developing these models.
