Co-design of Product, Processes and Network of firms
Design of innovative products corresponds
to a crucial strategic issue for SMEs. However, technical innovation alone cannot guarantee the profitability
of those innovative products. Firm’s internal processes should be analysed and designed in accordance
with innovative product design. Approaches, such as Concurrent Engineering, study links between product
and internal process design.
Design, production, distribution and sell
of innovative products necessitate the collaboration of various partners and few works have done considering
simultaneously both product and network of partners design or more generally design of Innovative product,
Internal process and Network of partners as a whole.
