Abstract

To reduce product development time, upstream testing and down-stream design processes are often overlapped. Existing studies do not recom-mend overlapping in situations where test results may have a significant effect on downstream redesign. However, this study identifies that, due to long pro-curement time and lengthy physical tests, companies may have no choice but to overlap these tasks to meet product delivery deadlines. This research investi-gates how a case study company manages these overlaps, and proposes a model to support the overlapping of testing and subsequent redesign phases.
