  • Shailendra Kadre


A considerable portion of IT efforts in any manufacturing organization goes toward supporting and carrying out engineering activities. IT for engineering is a different world altogether from the one most IT people are used to. Middle-level managers in IT departments need to appreciate the engineering aspect of IT because they are responsible for supporting it as well. In this chapter, you will look at a vehicle development program as an example of the use of IT in engineering. You will learn about the role of IT in rolling out a car, from the initial concept to the dealer’s place.
