Concurrent engineering and integrated design have been a major issue over the past two decades especially considering design for X stakes. This paper describes a new proposal of integrated product-process design approach in order to improve the efficiency and the robustness of the assembly process planning phase. The proposed method illustrates how to consider functional requirements and technical constraints as early as possible to improve design principles and define the best assembly sequences fulfilling these requirements. Lastly, the proposed research is applied on an aeronautic case study for illustrating the potential benefits of such an approach in terms of taking account of assembly knowledge in the early product development stages.
