Concurrent Engineering (CE) was conceived as an important concept in the '80s of the previous century. It has been studied and practiced extensively since then in many forms and under various names. Although the term CE is not in frequent use any more these days, the concept has grown, both conceptually and in importance. Actually, the concept has become a precondition for current ways of working in complex, dynamic, projects, supply chains and networks. In this book, the concept of CE is explored both in research and in practice. Both history and the current situation are treated including the many still existing theoretical and practical challenges. This chapter provides an introduction to the book.
