A great study done by Dr Franc Brglez, North Carolina State University Computer Science Division and sponsored and monitored by U.S. Army Research Office. The project it self is fairly new (from 1997).

The main thrust and the deliverable of this project was to demonstrate how effectively can a distributed team of faculty and student organize their environment to:

1- Create a prototype design

2- Conduct a series of distributed experiments to evaluate the performance of a CAD tool or an algorithm.

The whole study went mainly under the name of Project Vela. Related material you can find here: What is interesting is that seams like this project is the forerunner for other important projects that are related or extended in other fields. More reading here:
A great material for computer gurus

Thanks Telos

Here is another document to ‘dig in' without any costs involved… ATS

Abstract: The rapid advances in computing and networking technologies continue to stimulate formations of distributed teams worldwide. The advantages of an effective distributed design environment of tools, databases, and data management include the opportunity for a rapid assembly of a project-specific team of specialists who can immediately contribute towards the goals of the project-from almost anywhere, at any time. The DARPA-funded Vela project, named after constellation that forms the sail of Argo Navis (the Argonauts ship), brought together distributed university-based participants from six locations: MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) , MSU (Mississippi State Univ.), NCSU (North Carolina State Univ.), Stanford University, UCB (Univ. of California, Berkeley), and UCSC (Univ. of California, Santa Cruz). As conceived initially, the project was to balance two major tasks: a multi-media processor design as a project driver, and a web-based tool set for distributed design and benchmarking as the project infrastructure, with a major deliverable as a proof- of-concept demo in the University Booth during the Design Automation Conference. A total of three such demos were presented during 1998-2000, and a web-based archive of 26 peer-reviewed publications, data sets, software prototypes, and demo presentations are now accessible.

Unfortunately with your link ... I get a 'forbidden' message when I wanted to 'dig' into the 'The Vela Project effort at MSU'

You should try with another browser. If you're using Firefox then try with IE.
Sometimes happens to me too.

Take care
