    Design decisions can have unforeseen side effects that cause the need for redesign to propagate across partially completed designs. This risk prevails in linear and ordered models of multidisciplinary design wherein a sequence of specialists each aim to sign off `completed' portions of a design to their successors. One might imagine that such models should be relatively efficient and easy to manag... View full abstract»

    We propose a model for the concurrent engineering process based on an agent-oriented approach. Our modelling approach captures the relationships between the attributes, perceptions and actions of agents. Our model differs from traditional models in that it deals not only with the object being designed, but also with the interaction between the human design agents and its influence upon the develop...

  • Observations on the implementation of SE, the use of gaming techniques to empower teams and case studies of team working in selected UK industry

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):1/1 - 112
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (532 KB)

    Over the last three years a Brunel University team has explored the implementation of simultaneous engineering (SE) in a number of British companies in order to: understand what SE means in a British context; reveal “best practice” in SE; and explore ways of using gaming techniques to empower team working. This paper reports those studies in summary form resulting from an early analysi... View full abstract»

  • Concurrent software engineering: coordinating distributed viewpoints for managing inconsistency

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):10/1 - 10/2
    Cited by:  Papers (2)

    Concurrent engineering involves the collaboration and coordination of a physically distributed team with variable opportunities for communication with one another. Traditional approaches to the problems of distributed working use a central database, or repository, to which all team members have communication access. Consistency is managed in this database through strict access control and version ... View full abstract»

    World wide advances in manufacturing, physical distribution, retailing and information and communication technologies have created important opportunities for advances in management of the extended supply chain. Modern industrial supply chains operate as multipartner networks (extended logistics networks) of retailers, manufacturing distributors and supplier enterprises. Such chains now have to re...

    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (204 KB)

    Over the past decade there has been a growing debate in the literature regarding the most appropriate strategies for the implementation of concurrent engineering. Now there are several examples/cases outlining the effectiveness of different tools, techniques and methodologies etc. This paper focuses on the knowledge platform, which is like an “intelligent library”. It reports on the un... View full abstract»

    This paper examines the move to concurrent engineering with suppliers in one particular company, Rolls-Royce plc. It discusses the changes in the relationship between Rolls-Royces' Aerospace group and its suppliers to support concurrent engineering. It focuses on the re-design of business processes and the framework required to support this adaptation. Using this experience, the paper draws wider ... View full abstract»
