Due to a variety of reasons, the United States has been struggling to successfully compete in the global marketplace.Countries such as Japan have been providing better quality products for the past decade.A solution to this situation may be an organizational product design team called concurrent engineering.Concurrent engineering, or simultaneous engineering, is the integration of all disciplines of a product life cycle into one team in order to most effectively and efficiently create a quality end product.Manufacturing, R & D, engineering, manufacturing, design and others areas work together from the onset of a product life cycle.Optimally, this will shorten the length of the product life cycle, develop a better finished product, and increase global competitiveness.
