Abstract : There is an assumption often claimed and occasionally demonstrated by software engineering researchers and practitioners, that: The quality of designed software artifacts de-pends on the quality of interactions (collaborations) between members of the design team.Relying on the coordinative artifacts framework, we propose to enrich the existing CoDyMA (Collaborative Dynamics Measurement and Analysis) method with a procedure for assessing the quality of coordination interactions and the quality of coordination artifacts within a development team. First, we give an overview of the current CoDyMA method. Second, we present an overview of the coordinative artifacts framework. Third, we discuss how the assessment of coordination activities and artifacts is currently envisioned in CoDyMA (this discussion is illustrated with a case study). Fourth, we initiate a discussion on how the coordinative artifacts framework could inform the CoDyMA method.
