Maginness M., Shehab E., Beadle C. (2011) Planning Manufacturing in a Concurrent Engineering Environment: A Case Study. In: Frey D., Fukuda S., Rock G. (eds) Improving Complex Systems Today. Advanced Concurrent Engineering. Springer, London
This paper presents an investigation of current state practice of the Manufacturing Engineering discipline for concurrent manufacturing planning. The research adopted a case study approach and has been conducted at a globally operating manufacturer of aerospace products. The investigation establishes how information systems and the cross-functional teaming enable integrated processes for planning the manufacturing method to progress simultaneously with design in a lean and efficient manner. It applies value stream analysis to understand where value and non-value is added in these transactional processes.
