Abstract—The effectiveness of a team work not only depends on individual's knowledge; depends on cooperation and precise communication among them. The tradeoffs of remote communication as compared with face-to-face communication are a major issue for geographically dispersed team work. However, the challenges such as what task to be completed, what problems have been raised and clarified, clarity in project plan , availability of resource person and to make just-in-time decision are the major concerns of a software life cycle. Consequently, these issues cause project delay as well as anxiety among team members. The ease of communication can be achieved by aggregating the collective knowledge about the project, the domain knowledge and skills of managing project into a common resource platform with the help of intelligent agents and allow them to share the repository called Knowledge Grid. In this paper, we present the challenges in distributed team environment and ontology involved in software life cycle along with distributed agent algorithm.
