Simultaneous engineering (SE) is a working method during product development process. It enables the optimization of the development time span and improves the cooperation between product development, manufacturing engineering and production. Through SE significant efficiencies of scale are reached.
Valmet Automotive is very experienced and innovative in applying SE working method. Cross-functional SE teams are formed of experts of relevant functions (e.g. PD, production, logistics, SCM) to ensure real-time input and output to a manufacturing project.
