Due to shorter lifecycles and an increasing product complexity, the development of products and the respective production systems is more and more performed simultaneously. Nevertheless, both domains are often synchronized through common milestones, only. The application of different methods, processes and IT-tools is common practice. This situation potentially leads to suboptimal results concerning integrated aspects such as environmental impacts or even to quality problems on integrative tasks such as tolerance management or change management. For this reason the question arises, if and how both process streams could be interlinked any deeper in order to minimize such problems. This paper presents an integration framework along the three example integration fields of tolerance management, change management and eco engineering.

Keywords: Simultaneous engineering, tolerance and change management, eco engineering
