Concurrent Engineering Based Vehicle Development Project Management
Concurrent engineering has been used in many OEMs in order to face up to the fierce competition situation. Modular development teams develop common modules which are applied in the same platform-based variants and its product family in order to save design costs and reduce development time. The R&D department should construct a concurrent engineering team to quicken the pace of new product development and to ensure product quality by means of open-loop and close-loop cycle, and frame a platform to frequent communication and quick decision for the concurrent engineering team.
