Today, the implementation of concurrent engineering is further progressed on a strategic level than on operative level. Methods connecting both domains, product and production (system) development, are not yet advanced in order to fully exploit the potentials for cross-domain targets, e.g. minimization of the lifecycle energy consumption. This contribution describes a scientific formalization how product characteristics and production system characteristics depend on each other. Furthermore, a method that enables the multidimensional evaluation of product solutions with production system solutions is introduced in order to support decision making process in early product and production (system) development phases. The result of the method provides a combination of optimized solutions for product and production system.

Keywords: Concurrent Engineering (CE), Integrated Product Development, Product And Production (System) Development
