Life-Cycle Measures and Metrics for Gaining Manufacturing Operational Excellence 971753

Concurrent Engineering needs both: a series of measurement criteria that are distinct to each process, and a set of metrics to check (and validate) the outcome when two or more of the processes are overlapped or required to be executed in parallel. Since product realization involves concurrent processes that occur across multiple disciplines and organizations, appropriate metrics and the methods of qualifying them are essential. The paper describes these life-cycle measures and metrics and how those could be used for gaining operational excellence.
