"This publication contains papers on the recent advances in concurrent engineering research and applications. Concurrent Engineering (CE) is known as a strategic weapon to achieve industrial competitiveness by developing products better, cheaper and faster using multi-functional teamwork. With this book, the editors focus on developing new methodologies, techniques and tools based on Web technologies required to support the key objectives of CE. For several years, with different technologies of information diffusion and sharing provided by the Web, new opportunities have appeared to improve the concurrent engineering approach. This book brings together concurrent engineering with Web technology and applications. The Web is not merely an immense book where people can search, browse, and view information. It is also a vast database that can allow computers to do more useful work. By developing a Web that holds information for both human and machine processing, people solve problems that would otherwise be too tedious or complex to solve. This book is of interest to researchers, industrials and students interested in the recent advances in concurrent engineering research and applications."
