Concurrent engineering (CE) is also called simultaneous engineering. CE is a method of designing and developing products where the designs at different stages are performed simultaneously rather than consecutively and where the functions of design engineering, manufacturing engineering, and other functions are integrated to reduce the time required to decrease product development time, improve productivity, and reduce manufacturing costs. CE is in contrast to conventional sequential engineering design where design activities are performed in a sequential way.
