Abstract

The European project ENHANCE addressed the joint call "Concurrent Engineering in Aeronautics" issued by the Brite Euram programme (DG XII) and Esprit programme (DG III) and received funding from the supplementary budget of the 4th Framework Programme. It is a large and coherent R&D initiative in the field of Concurrent Engineering aimed at improving European Aeronautical industry competitiveness by providing new ways of reducing product development lifecycle and costs.
The ENHANCE main objectives were:
to define the new common way of working for joint European aeronautics product development, applicable from the initial design phase throughout the entire life of the aircraft, thus encompassing the whole aeronautical supply chain
- to propose a set of operational tools and solutions for Aeronautical Concurrent Engineering implementation
- to describe the associated engineering methods and organisation guidelines
- to validate the new approach through a full range of industrial experiments and business case studies
