Supported by concurrent engineering, three dimensional concurrent engineering (3DCE) is a simple yet powerful model of new product development (NPD) in which the traditional focus on an appropriate match between product and process is augmented by an additional consideration of supply chain configuration. This paper presents the results from an in-depth study of 3DCE theory, explores its impact on the integration of environmental considerations into the NPD process and maps its benefits onto environmental NPD.
