Simultaneous Engineering: The reality behind the jargon

Integrated Manufacturing Systems

Abstract

Reports on three papers concentrating on simultaneous engineering, presented at the Autotech 89 congress. Argues that CAE and CNC machines and new manufacturing systems cannot solve all the problems of new product introduction because of the traditional step‐by‐step approach to the production cycle rather than simultaneous phasing. Concludes that there is a need to get back to the basics of man‐management, communication, and common sense to allow simultaneous engineering and other manufacturing systems to occur naturally.
