Introduction: DFM Concepts
Concurrent engineering (CE) is defined as the earliest possible integration of the overall company’s knowledge, resources, and experience in design, development, marketing, manufacturing, and sales into creating successful new products, with high quality and low cost, while meeting customer expectations. The most important result of applying CE is the shortening of the product concept, design, and development process from a serial to a parallel one.
