Industrial and scientific research activity increasingly involves the geographically distributed utilisation of multiple tools, services and distributed data. Grid and Service Orientated Architecture concepts are being widely investigated as a means to deploy Virtual Organisations to support the needs for distributed collaboration. A generic Distributed Tool, Service and Data Architecture is described together with its application to the aero-engine domain through the BROADEN project. Two fundamental issues for the design of the VO have been addressed: how to maximise the potential of Grid computing to address the complex data mining challenges in the condition monitoring application; and how to maximise the potential of a SOA to build and deploy a flexible and efficient collaborative workbench that integrates the required tools and services.
