According to competitive and complex market situation, to fulfill customer needs the companies required to provide more functionality and higher quality software faster. Companies should be used existing resources as efficiently as possible, and they also need to utilize resources on a global scale from different sites within the company as well as associate companies throughout the world. All these provide in GSD that increase the functionality and quality of software. The main problem that GSD team face are: communication, coordination and work distribution. A proper mechanism for work distribution and communication has overcome the challenges that effect the project goal. To solve the GSD issues. We proposed a model that helps to mitigate these problems. We use site/work dependency and work/site characteristics criteria for the work distribution model. We also implement  phased base configuration and work distribution model that helps in the work distribution mechanism. And use NEOStation software to overcome the barriers of communication, coordination and project management. The model has been developed to provide reliable communication between team members and provide an approach to the distribution of work as support for managers.
