Concurrent Engineering

With respect to Sustainability

concurrent engineering defined
Concurrent Engineering Defined
  • How would you define concurrent engineering (CE)?
  • Definition: “Integrated approach to product-design that takes into account all stages of a product’s life cycle from design to disposal – including costs, quality, testing, user needs, customer support, and logistics”
  • What is an example of this?

- BusinessDictionary.com

sustainability defined
Sustainability Defined
  • What is sustainability?
  • What makes something sustainable?
  • Definition: “Ability to maintain or support an activity or process over the long term”
  • Give an example of something sustainable

questions to consider
Questions to Consider
  • How can they be related?
  • What makes them related?
  • Why is there a need for either concept?
  • Is the relationship mutually beneficial or mutually exclusive?
    • Why or why not?

ce vs sustainability
CE vs. Sustainability

Presentation by Matt Monsted

why engineers care
Why Engineers Care
  • We are working in an expanding world with finite resources
  • One approach = Innovation + Conservation (Simultaneously, in parallel)
  • Engineers are the ones who influence the utilization of resources with process design, therefore we are also the professionals others turn to for solutions
    • CE helps to accomplish these goals

Presentation by Matt Monsted

the need for ce sustainability
The Need for CE & Sustainability
  • Environments are constantly changing
  • Actions must be quick, effective, and responsible
  • Things must be done correctly the first time
  • Reduce reaction time and act
  • “To be competitive, corporations must alter their product and process development cycle to be able to complete diverse tasks concurrently”
  • Continuous improvement is always needed

Presentation by Matt Monsted

the ce approach
The CE Approach
  • Focuses on optimizing and distributing resources within a company or unit during design and development
  • Collaboration is required
  • Involves implementation, appraisal, and continuous improvement initiatives
  • Must be applied throughout a system to be successful (requires strong leadership)

Presentation by Matt Monsted

how to apply the ce approach
How to Apply the CE Approach
  • Commitment, Planning, and Leadership
    • Requires strong _________________________

to mandate organizational changes successfully

  • Continuous Improvement
    • CE is a process of ________________________

with a variety of implementation strategies, so continuous improvement is needed

  • Communication & Collaboration

Presentation by Matt Monsted

why use ce principles
Why Use CE Principles
  • Competitive Advantage
    • Helps any size company (small or large)
  • Increased Performance
    • Improves quality, development cycle, delivery time…etc
  • Reduced design and production (development) costs
    • Respond better to customer’s expectations at lower costs

Presentation by Matt Monsted

examples of sustainability ce
Examples of Sustainability & CE
  • Minimizing environmental damage to provide sufficient food, water, shelter, and mobility for an increasing world population
  • “Designing products and processes so that wastes from one are used as inputs to another”  
  • Including environmental and social constraints with economic considerations to make decisions

review of article assigned
Review of Article Assigned
  • Need for sustainability as population growth and economic programs put stress on ecosystem balances
  • Concurrency is the “leading design paradigm in achieving balance and sustainability in the human/environmental system” (Dawson, 63)
  • Concurrency consists of: ______________ & ______________
  • Concurrency is determined by comparing the current capacity and environmental systems _____________ to meet to current needs with the uncommitted system _____________________

________________ (Dawson, 64)

review of article
Review of Article
  • Concurrency as a management tool should be considered from the center of authority and not the local units; however the local unit decisions must be considered in the overall concurrency management plan (Dawson, 65)
  • “Concurrency provides assurance to developers, builders, and investors (owners)” (Dawson, 65)
  • Serious problems can arise when concurrency is applied to ___________________ and ___________________. (Dawson, 66)
  • “Concurrency depends on achieving and maintaining standards…” (Dawson, 67)
  • “Sustainable economic development and environmental quality and not mutually _______________” (Dawson, 68)

Presentation by Matt Monsted

review of ce principles
Review of CE Principles

  • Establish unified project goals and a clear business mission.
  • Develop a detailed plan early in the process.
  • Continually review your progress and revise your plan.

  • Suppress individualism and foster a team concept.
  • Establish and cultivate cross-functional integration and collaboration.
  • Transfer technology between individuals and departments.
  • Break project into its natural phases.
  • Develop metrics.
  • Set milestones throughout the development process.
  • Collectively work on all parts of project.
