There are many methods which are enhanced by taking a Concurrent approach and integrating the whole. This is significant when R&D accounts for 10-20% of annual productivity gains in the USA, typically averaging 2.3% growth per year. We proudly offer this conference on the premise that Concurrent Engineering and Concurrent Product Development are an integral part of that productivity growth. Concurrency (CPD) is the Guiding Principle of Innovation!
