As I and others uttered at the Erlang Exchange 2008 the most important thing
to get right is the protocols between the entities of your system so your
first step should be to draw up an architecture diagram and focus on what
the protocols between the entities should be.

This does not require anything but pen and paper, but a drawing program and
a wiki has worked wonders in my team - makes it easier to share knowledge.

A design tool that looks promising for Erlang is Object-Process Methodology
 I have read the book and after my summer vacation I will start
experimenting with OPM for design of Erlang/OTP systems.
