  2. 2. • Meaning • Traditional Engineering • Why Concurrent Engineering • Benefits • Challenges • DFM • DFL Agenda
  3. 3. Meaning A method of designing and developing products, in which the different stages run simultaneously, rather than consecutively.
  4. 4. Traditional Engineering
  5. 5. Concurrent Engineering
  6. 6. Why Concurrent Engineering? • Change in market pace • Faster decisions • Reduced repetition of tasks • Faster response • Reduced cost • Efficient operations
  7. 7. Benefits of Concurrent Engineering • Competitive advantage • Faster time to market • Enhanced Quality • Enhanced Productivity • Decrease design and development time
  8. 8. Challenges • Support from top management • Dedication • Careful planning • New product’s lifecycle should fit in the existing product program lifecycles in a company
  9. 9. Design for Manufacturability • Definition – “is the method of design for ease of manufacturing of the collection of parts that will form the product”. • The goal is to design a product that is easily and economically manufactured. Points to be considered Costs Control Methods of Production Time required for production Availability of raw materials
  10. 10. Design for Logistics DFL is a strategy in SCM which involves product design to reduce logistics cost. • It increase customer service levels Economic Packaging and transportation Concurrent Engineering Standardization Three Components
  11. 11. Economic Transportation and Storage • Design products for efficient packing and storing • Design packaging so that products can be consolidated at cross docking points • Design products to efficient utilization of retail space
  12. 12. Concurrent/Parallel Processing • Objective - minimize lead times • Reducing the manufacturing process Standardization By using common parts for many different products
