English term or phrase: supplier involvement between .. upfront
En este caso se trata de las tareas que debe desempeñar el analista de compras: "Coordinate the appropriate supplier involvement between Product Engineering, Manufacturing, and Production Purchasing to facilitate up-front simultaneous engineering efforts".
No entiendo bien el papel del proveedor con la preposición "between" en este contexto ni la palabra "upfront". Yo lo interpreto: Coordinar la participación adecuada de los proveedores entre??? la concepción tecnológica de los productos, la fabricación y la compra de la producción para facilitar los esfuerzos técnicos simultáneos upfront???

Explanation:
The sense I get is that the job occupant is coordinating the supplier’s involvement WITH those areas; in other words, the job occupant is the person working BETWEEN the supplier and the departments, and BETWEEN the departments themselves, as the go-between or intermediary. I think if you substitute “con” in the first part of aalzugaray’s answer, i.e., “Coordinar la adecuada participación del proveedor con las áreas de Ingeniería de Producto, Fabricación y Compras de Producción” that would give the right meaning. As far as “up-front efforts,” it refers to all of the activities that are done in advance (de antemano) before a project is actually begun: planning, research, any type of preparation. So maybe for the second part of your sentence, something like: “....para facilitar las actividades simultáneas de planificación y preparación de(l área de) ingeniería.”

Here are some references for the up-front efforts part:

We do not arbitrarily submit resumes without first discussing an opportunity with a candidate to make sure there is interest in the position and that the candidate is qualified.
This way you are only looking at real openings and companies are only talking to qualified candidates. Our extremely high success rate in placements is a direct result of our up-front efforts to provide the best possible match.(http://www.al.com/jls/body.html)

The most fertile ground for innovation is early in the design cycle. Prior to the introduction of computers in design, the majority of innovation occurred within the "up-front" efforts of preparing for the design activity and the synthesizing of concepts. (http://www.caenet.com/res/archives/9712evolution.html).

There are plenty of other examples out there that illustrate this meaning.

Hope it helps.
