Description

Product Design presents an in-depth study of structured designed processes and methods. KEY TOPICS: Fundamental approach is that reverse engineering and teardowns offer a new better paradigm for design instruction, permitting a modern learning cycle of experience, hypothesis, understanding, and then execution. MARKET: For practicing engineers interested in learning about mechanical design. FEATURES/BENEFITS *Fundamental approach is that reverse engineering and teardowns offer a new better paradigm for design instruction, permitting a modern learning cycle of experience, hypothesis, understanding, and then execution. *Concrete experiences with hands-on products. *Applications of contemporary technologies. *Studies of systematic experimentation. *Exploration of the boundaries of design methodology. *Decision making for real product development. *Discusses the foundation material of product design, including a philosophy for learning and implementing product design methods. *Each chapter includes both basic and advanced techniques for particular phases of product development.show more
