Two concurrent processes [P.sub.1][[parallel].sub.A][P.sub.2], A = {a, [bar.a], c, [bar.c]} and [P.sub.1] = a.b.[bar.c].[P'.sub.1], [P.sub.2] = [bar.a].c.d.[P'.sub.2] are illustrated in Fig.
* Complete change from sequential processes through multiple departments to concurrent processes.
In this concurrent process, any questions and comments from reviewers were relayed to the study team immediately.
To reduce die manufacture time, the automaker's engineers converted the serial die-making process to a concurrent process. They also implemented stamping simulation software, called Pam-Stamp, from ESI Group of Rungis Cedex, France.
"We had just six months from the start of the project until production, which means we had to utilize a concurrent process for design, development, durability testing, purchasing, and build."
Each icon represents the state of a concurrent process. Message queues are displayed as connecting lines between the process icons.
With the Process Manual, our customers will capture their accumulated process engineering knowledge, while BaSYS enables both concurrent process development and capture of the specific plant and process information generated during design and operation."
There were five elements in Lexmark's concurrent process:
Now consider what would happen if the sequential process were replaced by a concurrent process, in which all parties participate "up front" in the design.
Because the FPGA/PCB integration is in the critical path for the design, we need to look for methods to change the serial process into a concurrent process that saves as much time as possible.
