Engineering Design Communication (EDC) is highly collaborative, multi-disciplinary and often relates to one or more artefacts associated with the product. This results in the need for a method of communication that can deliver the required engineering context, enable multiple-perspectives to be expressed and represent the artefact of interest. Therefore, this paper presents some initial insights from the analysis of user behaviour using a custom-built Social Media tool (PartBook), which has been specifically designed to support EDC and has been deployed in a Formula Student Team.
