MECE 2310U – Concurrent Engineering and Design


This course covers the modern integrated product development process. Unlike the traditional product development approach, concurrent (simultaneous) engineering and design reunites technical and nontechnical disciplines and brings forward a philosophy of cross-functional cooperation in order to create products which meet pre-determined objectives, and are better, less expensive, and more quickly brought to market. It is a process in which appropriate disciplines are committed to work interactively to analyze market and customer requirements in order to improve the end-to-end process by which products are conceived, designed, manufactured, assembled, sold to the customer, serviced, and finally disposed of. The concept of design is presented. Brainstorming, creativity methods, design for manufacturing, design for assembly, design for cost, and design for quality, life cycle design, reverse engineering, and rapid prototyping are addressed. Teamwork and communication skills are developed.
