This is an example of independent concurrent engineering
across disciplines: The two activities do not affect each other, but the overall schedule is shortened.
Today's concurrent engineering
system favors the OEM.
People problems begin to surface within the organization however, when applying concurrent engineering
, such as:
performs some form of concurrent engineering
with about 80% of its major customers.
The concurrent engineering
systems coming out of Stanford are also being tested by local business organizations in California such as the Palo Alto Cooperative Test Bed and the Stanford Integrated Manufacturers Association.
will become increasingly important in today's computer-integrated manufacturing (CIM) environment.
2~|center dot~D) has been developed to address this problem of process and product design in a concurrent engineering
The solution was three-way concurrent engineering
of part design to be sure nearly identical covers could be made by both thermoforming and injection molding.
