This proven and internationally recognized text teaches the methods of engineering design as a condition of successful product development. It breaks down the design process into phases and then into distinct steps, each with its own working methods. The book provides more examples of product development; it also tightens the scientific bases of its design ideas with new solution fields in composite components, building methods, mechatronics and adaptronics. The economics of design and development are covered and electronic design process technology integrated into its methods. The book is sharply written and well-illustrated.
Fundamentals.- Product Planning, Solution Finding and Evaluation.- Product Development Process.- Task Clarification.- Conceptual Design.- Embodiment Design.- Mechanical Connections, Mechatronics and Adaptronics.- Size Ranges and Modular Products.- Design for Quality.- Design for Minimum Cost.- Summary.

"Engineering Design is widely acknowledged to be the most complete available treatise on systematic design methods. In it, each step of the engineering design process and associated best practices are documented. The book has particularly strong sections on design from the functional perspective and on the phase of the process between conceptual and detail design in which most key design decisions are made. The 3rd edition includes new material on project planning and scheduling. Anyone committed to understanding the design process should be familiar with the contents of this book."
Warren Seering, Weber-Shaughness Professor of Mechanical Engineering, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
On the second edition of this title:
"With a renewed interest in the critical role product design plays in maintaining economic competitiveness, American designers would be well advised to become thoroughly acquainted with this wealth of information."
