This paper describes a new design approach that implements the three principles of Set-based Concurrent Engineering by using the concept of Configurable Component modelling. Several case studies has proven the efficiency of Configurable Component modelling as well as the Set-based philosophy, and by combining these two research areas, a computer based modelling of Configurable Component objects is used to support the Set-based philosophy. The approach is demonstrated by a case study that indicates a promising future of combining Set-based Concurrent Engineering with Configurable Component modelling for re-design problems.
