Description : This book is dedicated to the essential components of the design process and uses case studies, labs, and group projects to show their application. With explicit guidance, students learn that the design process is a set of procedures that will help them solve engineering problems. Yousef Haik and Tamer Shahin illustrate the critical steps of the design process, including articulating the problem, market analysis, function analysis, developing concepts, evaluating alternatives, and marketing, while facilitating hands-on learning and teamwork opportunities through labs and class-tested design problems.

Description : 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.
Description : This book features mainstream coverage of machine design topics with some inclusion of statistical methods. (Midwest).
Description : Features include: jargon-free language with well-tried, real-world examples; useful tips for managers at the end of each chapter; a comprehensive bibliography at the end of the book. It is also highly informative for graduate and undergraduate engineering students and ideally suited for establishing a web-based design management system for geographically dispersed teams. Changes in the second edition: New case studies. Expanded text in each chapter (about 50 new pages worth) including a wholly new chapter on the analysis of the design process as a whole.
Description : This book presents select proceedings of the International Conference on Future Learning Aspects of Mechanical Engineering (FLAME 2018). The book covers mechanical design areas such as computational mechanics, finite element modeling, computer aided designing, tribology, fracture mechanics, and vibration. The book brings together different aspects of engineering design, and will be useful for researchers and professionals working in this field.
Description : Successful engineering design requires a strong understanding of fundamental concepts in the basic sciences and engineering combined with mathematics. This text provides an introduction to the design tools used in engineering design. It focuses on the first two steps of the design process: determination of need/problem clarification and conceptualization. In addition, an overview of materials and manufacturing methods is presented. The use of Excel has been incorporated throughout the text for performing routine calculations, leaving more time for the creative aspects of the design process. Finally, the text contains an extensive discussion of systematic concept generation using the theory of inventive problem solving, TRIZ. Below is a listing of the book's table of contents: 1.
