Requirements management: an enabler for concurrent engineering in the automotive industry

C. I. V. Kerr, R. Roy, P. J. Sackett
2006 International Journal of Production Research  
To realise an all inclusive concurrent engineering process, tools for the upstream design activities are needed.  ...  Defining and agreeing the product requirements is especially important when the design and manufacture of a system is part of an Extended Enterprise.  ...  This allows an OEM and their respective suppliers to both collaboratively and freely develop their own ontologies for various and separate or common automotive systems.  ...
