  • focuses on concurrent engineering—in which a cross-functional team (the research engineer, product engineer, manufacturing engineer, and quality engineer) designs and develops manufacturing processes and facilities and quality assurance processes and facilities concurrently with the design of the product itself.
  • explains how to structure technical projects, estimate product development time and cost, and control projects.
  • computes the project schedule for a specified probability, as well as for the critical path schedule which is only 50% probable.
  • includes sample functional specifications, detailed product specifications, project description, plan network, resource allocation, cost schedule, and report/proposal.
  • presents two continuing case studies of projects—illustrating how the step-by-step procedure for implementing concurrent project management is carried out.

Concurrent engineering (wherein all the essential functions for new product development and distribution are carried out concurrently) is a recently developed method that 1) reduces the time required to commercialize a new product and take it to market, and 2) enables time and cost schedules to be more realistically estimated. Based on the author's extensive experience in industry in new product development, this volume explores concurrent management of projects based on concurrent engineering. KEY TOPICS: Provides a complete, step-by-step, Total Quality Management procedure (with sample case studies) for implementing concurrent engineering in the planning, scheduling, and controlling of technical projects, and broadens the scope to include other key functions such as marketing, materials management, industrial design, finance and human resources. Unlike most other books that focus more on controlling the project after it begins, this volume emphasizes that the best way of controlling the project is by sound planning and realistic scheduling before the project begins. MARKET: For Project Managers; Manufacturing, Mechanical, and Electrical Engineers working in a concurrent environment; and for Quality Engineering and Management practitioners.
