Simultaneous Engineering

Simultaneous engineering (SIMENG) is the collaboration of engineering partners, Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and suppliers in the development of new or modified processes.

At Castrol, we have used our extensive knowledge gained from working with OEMs, machine tool builders and tooling suppliers to focus on simultaneous engineering projects and deliver innovative and technologically advanced solutions that push the boundaries of performance within your operations.
