R&D project – Method for Concurrent Engineering
The Norwegian transport industry’s new methodology within simultaneous design and interdisciplinary collaboration has been developed over four years. The project group summarizes the experiences of using the method and points to the way forward. What have we learned from the methodology, and what should we take forward for the best for the entire transport industry?
Erling Graarud is responsible for the R&D project and explains the background for the method development of faster project implementation;
“In today’s transport projects, the tasks have become more complex, the number of processes and specialists has increased and more subjects and aspects are included. To ensure that all societal goals and other requirements are met, it is important that decisions are made on the broadest possible basis, at the right time, and with the greatest possible understanding of the overall picture. The goal of the R&D project was therefore to find methods that effectively ensure that the right parties are involved and make the right decisions at the right time. To also do this faster, a simultaneity of the work is required, says Graarud.”
