Simultaneous Engineering in Aero Gas Turbine Design and Manufacture
Published January 01, 1992 by Institution of Mechanical Engineers in United Kingdom
This paper presents an analysis of the Engineering process in aero gas turbine design and manufacture. In an attempt to optimize this process to the needs of the business, the philosophies of Simultaneous Engineering are explored and applied to it. The management of people is discussed in this highly integrated environment and the impact of computer aided engineering is examined as an enabling device for Simultaneous Engineering. Examples of the successful implementation of Simultaneous Engineering are given.
