Notes

  • Set-Based Concurrent Engineering (SBCE) is a product development approach that allows multifunctional teams to ideates, develop, and communicates sets of conceptual solutions in parallel.

  • They gradually narrow these sets by eliminating inferior or infeasible solutions as the team progresses and builds up the understanding, knowledge, and evidence about the solution sets.

  • Critical decisions are purposely delayed until the last possible moment to gather more information before making the decision.

  • Foundation framework of SBCE, based on Toyota's best practices:

    • Principle 1: Map The Design Space
      • Define feasible regions.
      • Explore trade-offs by designing multiple alternatives.
      • Communicate sets of possibilities.
    • Principle 2: Integrate by Intersection
      • Look for intersections of feasible sets.
      • Impose minimum constraint.
      • Seek conceptual robustness.
    • Principle 3: Establish Feasibility Before Commitment
      • Narrow sets gradually while increasing details.
      • Stay within sets once committed.
      • Control by managing uncertainty at process gates.

Queueing Theory
It can provide essential insights to product developers because there're similar problems of unpredictable work arrival time and unpredictable task durations.

Critical Path
The critical path is the most extended sequence of activities in a project plan. The project is only completed on time only if you meet these activities.
