2012 Concurrent Engineering Approaches for Sustainable Product Development in a Multi-Disciplinary Environment  
This work proposes the creation of a holistic and transdisciplinary process model view, named Process Science & Technology, for the unification and integration of concepts and techniques originated in various disciplines that deal with complex discrete event processes descriptions. Building upon this unified model view, the work draws some guidelines for the development of a systematic approach to conduct Process Science & Technology studies, named a Framework for Process Science & Technology,

The approach is demonstrated by means of a study case applied to the service processes for integration and testing of advanced technological products provided by the Laboratory of Integration and Testing of the Space Research Institute (LIT/INPE).
