Abstract

This paper presents an investigation of current state practice of the Manufacturing Engineering discipline for concurrent manufacturing planning. The research adopted a case study approach and has been conducted at a globally operating manufacturer of aerospace products. The investigation establishes how information systems and the cross-functional teaming enable integrated processes for planning the manufacturing method to progress simultaneously with design in a lean and efficient manner. It applies value stream analysis to understand where value and non-value is added in these transactional processes.
