    Abstract

    During 90’s Nokia achieved a leading position utilizing Concurrent Engineering (CE) process successfully. Strong growing of the company, maturing markets and changes in competition has put increasing pressure to develop Product Process system of the company to keep its position as an agile, innovative and productive product developer. Dynamic simulation approach has been one of the activities among other Product Process development efforts in the company. This paper describes the approach and “Product Process Decision Simulation” (PPDS) solution as the first implemented application of the approach. A dynamic model of product development has been created and applied “To manage Product Process complex dynamic behavior on system level in order to reduce product development cycle times, slippages and costs as well as improve perceived product quality”. The key contribution of the simulation solution is to provoke facilitated discussion in order to gain shared understanding of interdependencies and dynamic causes and effects in Product Process. The implementation and frequent simulation workshops have started in June 2006 and over 300 R&D people have already participated.
