Abstract

: A generic IDEFO model of integrated product development for concurrent design of product and process is presented. The complete model consists of twenty four activity diagrams spanning three levels. A corresponding node index and data is included. IDEFO was found to be a powerful functional modelling technique which minimized the need for elaborate descriptive text and its graphical presentation provided a clear representation of a complex aspect of design and manufacturing. Introduction There are six stages in a new product development. It begins with product design specification and followed by conceptual design, prototype and test, detailed design, manufacturing and support system.The first four stages are in t
