This paper advocates logistics involvement in the early phases of product design and development in a concurrent engineering environment. A concurrent engineering environment and the bene®ts of such involvement are explained in detail. The paper focuses on facilitating an interface and a collaboration between the designer and the logistician. A conceptual interface for design for logistics is presented. Four areas of interface are considered: (a) logistics engineering, (b) manufacturing… CONTINUE READING
