Uncertainty and dependence make concurrency less attractive, reducing the optimal overlap. However, the speed of uncertainty reduction may increase or decrease optimal overlap. Third, choosing communication and concurrency separately prevents achieving the optimal time-to-market, resulting in a need for by: Communication and Uncertainty in Concurrent Engineering Christoph H. Loch Christian Terwiesch INSEAD INSEAD , April Abstract We present an analytical model of concurrent engineering, where an upstream and a downstream task are overlapped to Cited by: Communication and Uncertainty in Concurrent Engineering passed from an upstream to a downstream activity in the form of an interval. A parameter, e.g., the depth of a car door handle, is initially known only up to an in-terval, which narrows over time as the design becomes final. In this framework, two concepts determine the overlap trade-off. Downloadable! We present an analytical model of concurrent engineering, where an upstream and a down-stream task are overlapped to minimize time-to-market. The gain from overlapping activities must be weighed against the delay from rework that results from proceeding in parallel based on preliminary information. Communication reduces the negative effect of rework at the expense of.
Communication reduces the negative effect of rework at the expense of communication time. We derive the optimal levels of concurrency combined with communication, and we analyze how these two decisions interact in the presence of uncertainty and dependence. Volume II of the CE Fundamentals book-set is a thorough, original guide to using Concurrent Engineering principles to develop products that meet customer needs -- and to do so as quickly and. The fundamental challenge for refining theories of communication and uncertainty is to abandon the assumption that uncertainty will produce anxiety. To better explain processes of communication and uncertainty management, we must answer questions about (a) the experience and meaning of uncertainty, (b) the role of appraisal and emotion in. This article analyzes the link between the use of concurrent engineering (CE) and success in new product development (NPD) under varying conditions of uncertainty and complexity—radical versus incremental innovations.
