Abstract

The use of innovation to achieve a competitive advantage is notnew. What is of current interest is how some manufacturing organizationshave used the speed of product innovation to gain competitive edge. Toimplement such a competitive strategy effectively, many firms haveapplied the technique of simultaneous engineering. The most commonsubject of previously published research on simultaneous engineering hasbeen its application to product innovation. The article focuses onsimultaneous process engineering. It explains how the principles ofquality function deployment, which are used for product design, can beapplied to manufacturing process design. It details the lessons learnedfrom adopting such an approach for simultaneous process design.
