Ford Motor Company's Investment Efficiency Initiative
Case Study: Ford Motor Company's Investment Efficiency Initiative
Feature Based Concurrent Engineering System
This research project is aimed at development of a concurrent engineering system for integrated product and process development of machined component designs. Its main purpose is to evaluate the feasibility of implementation of a concurrent engineering system which provides both horizontal and vertical integration of CAD/CAM systems.
Concurrent Engineering For Composites
During the last decade, the composites industry has faced increasing competition on a world wide basis. This has led to an increasing emphasis on the development of newer and improved materials and processes.
Concurrent Engineering Teams
This paper specifically addresses the management and organizational issues surrounding concurrent engineering teams and their meetings and identifies the types of computer support that would be beneficial to the group problem solving activities of the concurrent engineering teams.
Concurrent Engineering Electronic Circuit Design
Concurrent Engineering (CE) utilizes Multi-discipline Design Teams to perform the simultaneous design of the product and all of the life-cycle processes associated with the product that are required to meet the user's needs.
Concurrent Engineering Standards
Concurrent Engineering Through Product Data Standards
Design to Cost and Life Cycle Cost
Some products may be built to a minimum first cost without regard to later costs incurred as a result of initial cost savings. Presumably if this is overdone,the marketplace will shun the product and a more rational balanced design will win out.
Concept Design and Design-to-Cost Trade Studies
Techniques for Conducting Effective Concept Design and Design-to-Cost Trade Studies
Design to Cost Concept and Application
Design- to-Cost is described and placed in context with other policy revisions. Impacts of recent changes and resultant controversies are explored. Sample cases display the actual implementation of Design- to-Cost . Problem areas are enumerated and remedial actions proposed.
Manufacturing Technology Advances
Manufacturing companies in high-wage countries are challenged with increasing volatile and global markets, short innovation cycles, cost-pressure and mostly expensive resources. However, these challenges can also open up new business opportunities for companies if they are able to produce customer-specific products at mass production costs and if they can rapidly adapt to the market dynamics while assuring optimised use of resources.
