Abstract: In this work we provide a brief insight into two aspects of Be/X-ray binaries, which are probably involved in production of X-ray outbursts: the evolution of the Be star disk, in particular of its size, and the binary geometry which drives gravitational interaction. Simultaneous X-ray and optical data will aid our investigation of the evolution of Be stars in binaries and the X-ray outburst mechanism.
