Abstract: Companies are under increasing pressure to develop new products more effectively and efficiently. In order to meet this challenge, the organisation of the new product development process has received ample attention both in the academic literature and in the practitioner literature. As a consequence, a myriad of methods to design new products has been developed. These methods aim at facilitating concurrent product design and engineering. However, it is only recently, through the advent of families of novel design technologies, that concurrency really becomes possible. In this chapter, recent research insights on the impact of these design technologies on the product development process are reported and discussed.
