Design for Competition: The Swedish DFX Experience
• No tool will create concurrent engineering unless the organization of work is adapted to a high degree of co-operation between functions, e.g. marketing, design and manufacturing, and competence domains.
• Use of the tools and/or information technology in product development could give excellent support to concurrent engineering if the implementation is made with regards to co-operative work.
• Design for competition demands a simultaneous focusing on both product development process and the persons in the process.
