As part of a faculty development program, I am working with a major
engineering company that has engineers in several states working on
projects as one integrated team.

The design calculations, procedures, CAD files, etc, are available to
engineers and designers via web sites.  The company is planing on
expanding their use of the internet, and is making major commitments of
time and resources to further this expansion.

For this company, the internet is a functional, cost effective business
tool, not a "passing fad".
