That way management can coordinate schedules more easily, and can resolve techinical issues sooner. The h/w and s/w folks should also be on each other's email lists (or part of whatever electronic means each group uses for internal collaboration.) Even if they don't understand or closely follow everything the other group is doing, they can still understand the big picture. Occasional face-to-face meetings are helpful, too.
