Real-time interactive collaboration is key to the success of organisations providing customised products/services to clients. This is especially the case when managers and engineers are on the move and need to communicate with and access data from not only the head office, but from other partners and clients engaged in the definition, development, delivery, or maintenance of the product/service. This paper introduces model-based collaborative virtual engineering supported through a model server as a paradigm shift from simple drawings and phone call based collaboration. The case of a textile machine manufacturing SME is presented from the perspective of three main business scenarios covering manager on a business trip, engineer on remote site, and virtual team collaboration. These scenarios are realised through the intuitive use of the CoVES model server, hybrid model, and integrated messaging concepts.
