In the adoption of Concurrent Engineering (CE) by industry, we recognize the following connected set of approaches suggested by D. Hall:

Low Road: Inter-disciplinary human teams.
Middle Road: Quality Management Techniques such as Taguchi methods, Quality Function Deployment, and Statistical Process and Quality Control.
High Road: Cooperative Product Development by Networked teams, Knowledge integration, Product and Process Simulation, etc.
