The principle of Simultaneous Engineering (SE) has generally reached its limits. Today the issue of process security is central in product development. Therefore enterprises will have to work out a Standard-PDP (Product Development Process) with the participation of all relevant departments and hierarchy levels. Otherwise process security can not be secured as design processes become increasingly complex. The aim in this contribution is to:
- take a close look at interdependencies between design processes and other processes in product development;
- show how SE-processes can be shaped by a combined effort of the entire organisation;
- give an example of how agreement was reached at an automotive enterprise on project phases and milestones.
