Abstract [en]

Purpose - Three dimensionally concurrent designing of products, processes and supply chains render immense benefits in developing holistic, market-responsive architecture of organizations through linkages created by dynamic capability development and innovation. Practice of this framework inevitably synthesizes and sustains the critical success factors (CSFs) for organizations to focus on their operational performance. The research shows how development of the building blocks of three dimensional concurrent engineering (3-DCE) perspectives and complementary value systems, and fostering these capabilities/competencies can develop myriads of CSFs for organizations, thus yielding business success. Design/methodology/approach - A combined explanatory and exploratory study is conducted on 42 Swedish textile, clothing and fashion firms for organizational competency mapping along the 3-DCE domain and are analyzed to understand the key areas in which to invest and how to invest their resources and time. Findings - The results are manifold. It shows that most of the key success factors are synthesized and sustained through 3-DCE designing. It also highlights the necessity to incorporate intangible value propositions into the 3-DCE model to generate an ‘extended 3-DCE’ framework for mediating operational performance and hence organizational success also corroborating that a trajectory/commonality exists in synthesizing these CSFs leading to success. Research limitations/implications - The research requires further analysis of the market to prove its fit in a dynamic environment to represent a design for resilience perspective. Originality/value - The research is exemplary empirically in the field of 3-DCE and CSFs towards creating a framework for relating organizational structure and value system to the demands of the market in creating CSFs leading to organizational success.
