Zieve, P., "Benefits of Concurrent Engineering," SAE Technical Paper 931765, 1993, doi:10.4271/931765.
For seven years Electroimpact, Inc. has been providing manufacturing equipment to the aerospace assembly business. Our industry is not partial toward working with small companies such as Electroimpact. But we fill a niche.The niche which we fill is in the area of new processes. We have developed new processes which have made inroads into the industry. This paper will review a number of case studies for the implementation of new manufacturing technology in the aerospace industry. In all of these cases motivation for the implementation of new technology is the driving force and concurrent engineering is the vehicle for successful implementation. Although this review is only cursory it can provide a reference to help you make further inquiries.
