By Josip Stjepandić, Nel Wognum, Wim J.C. Verhagen

Presenting the sluggish evolution of the idea that of Concurrent Engineering (CE), and the technical, social tools and instruments which have been constructed, together with the numerous theoretical and useful demanding situations that also exist, this ebook serves to summarize the achievements and present demanding situations of CE and should supply readers a accomplished photograph of CE as researched and practiced in numerous areas of the world.

Featuring in-depth research of advanced real-life purposes and reviews, this publication demonstrates that Concurrent Engineering is used largely in lots of industries and that an analogous easy engineering rules is usually utilized to new, rising fields like sustainable mobility.

Designed to function a precious connection with specialists, managers, scholars, researchers, and software program builders, this publication is meant to function either an creation to improvement and as an research of the unconventional ways and strategies of CE, in addition to being a compact reference for more matured readers.

As already indicated above, to satisfy the different market and consumer demands, safeguarding or improving reputation and image without increasing costs too much, while remaining sustainable, FSCs need to continuously innovate their products, processes, and organisation. This will hardly be possible without collaboration between relevant stakeholders and taking into account specific properties of the food supply chain. In Sect. 1 the CE system in the food industry with its different aspects and elements is discussed.

These incidents damage reputation of food supply chains and reduce consumer trust. , [37]). Consumers increasingly wish to be convinced of the safety and healthiness of food products, which requires food supply chains to be transparent, while traceability of the materials and products needs to be guaranteed. In current global food supply chains this is a big challenge. Many food supply chains (FSC) act globally. Consequently, worldwide involvement, regulations, requirements, and consequences of actions and decisions need to be taken into account.
