Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference article in proceedingsScientificpeer-review


Integrated simulation based design requires effective methods to gain all desired results. Concurrent engineering is a product development method, which integrates all the company's functions. It brings together people, departments, software and many other functions so that their co-operation will work effectively. Integrating all the functions requires a lot both management and software. Management includes a new strategy, personnel training and commitment, teamwork, project management, communication etc. Secondly concurrent engineering method is useless without effective software integration in design and management. Also use of simulation and other information systems is essential. In the future the global markets and new software will force the companies to develop their product development systems faster and better. Therefore it is necessity for the companies to implement concurrent engineering method.
