Abstract

Parallel, or concurrent, or simultaneous engineering (CE/SE) integrates design, manufacturing, quality control, shop floor automation, marketing, and other processes to cut lead time. CE/SE focusses on parallel interaction among various product life cycle concerns. It is a systematic approach to integrate, concurrent design of products and their related processes, including manufacture and support. This approach is intended to cause Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Limited, to consider all elements of the product life cycle from conception through disposal, including quality, cost schedule and user requirements.
