Thanks for the info. I've been introduced to Rational in the past, but I'd be fighting an uphill battle to obtain licensing for it. We are pretty much limited to Microsoft products. I know that there are a lot of features in Visio that I'm not aware of, so that might be a good starting point. Is there anything in Visual Studio Team System that would be helpful? I've watched some demos on the product and I see that it has static code analysis, profiling, testing support etc, but it doesn't appear that it would be helpful for what I'm looking for. Automatic code generation doesn't work well for us either, since we are dealing with existing c++ applications and we generally don't create a lot of new classes.

Drawing stuff out on paper (or a white board) is always a good idea. With this offshore design, we are finding that we need a high level of detail in the design. I think what would be helpful would be able to define classes and their member functions and include pseudo code with the member functions. I'm trying to get away from Microsoft Word. I find my self spending more time fighting Microsoft Word than I do thinking about design. I know Rational has some ability to generate some documentation. I think that alone would boost my productivity considerably.
