Concurrent Engineering: Research and Applications
Publisher: SAGE Publications
Concurrent Engineering: Research and Applications (CERA) publishes papers on
state-of-the-art research and development, product development, and novel
applications and tools in areas of concurrent engineering (CE).
The journal addresses all basic tracks that enable CE, including aspects of
information modeling, teaming and sharing, networking and distribution,
planning and scheduling, reasoning and negotiating, collaborative decision
making, organisation and management of CE.
Devoted to the international exchange of scientific information in this
critical area, CERA is a multidisciplinary research and
applications-oriented journal which fosters the exchange and integration of
concepts and theories from diverse areas, as well as the cross-fertilization
of enabling CE technologies.
Emphasis is placed on CE technologies that result in faster product
development, higher quality, lower costs, improved productivity and better
Major research areas include: CE process characterization and matrices,
enterprise modelling, multi-enterprise integration, information sharing and
collaboration, networked collocation, tools for multi-media conferences,
distributed environments, corporate technical memories, capturing design
