## Notes - Set-Based Concurrent Engineering (SBCE) is a product development approach that allows multifunctional teams to ideate, 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 build 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 constraints. - 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. ## References - [Matic Golob.
