9780124301450: Engineering Design: Products, Processes, and Systems

Written by a world class expert in design engineering, this book introduces the reader to models, frameworks, methodologies, and algorithms that have been applied with great success in industry. These approaches have significantly reduced product development cycle time and improved product and process quality and reliability. Engineering design impacts a wide range of tasks, beginning with the recognition of customer needs and ending with the disposal of the designed artifact. Engineering Design: Products, Processes, and Systems is unique in presenting a process view that allows for uniform treatment of problems and issues over the entire product life cycle. The reader will acquire a complete understanding of process modeling methodologies, process reengineering, the organization of design teams, design for manufacturing, and problem solving from tolerance design to product modularity and negotiation among members of the design team.
The book is liberally illustrated with industrial case studies and examples, and is written to meet the needs of senior undergraduate and graduate students, designers, systems analysts, software engineers, managers, and other practitioners. As the book emphasizes modeling and analysis of the design process, it is of interest to numerous disciplines, including industrial, mechanical, electrical, systems, and software engineering, as well as to various business areas such as operations management and management science. Significant portions of the material apply to the service sector, including healthcare.
Web-Resident Supplementary Materials
Power Point slides are available for all sixteen chapters, including solutions to all problems presented at the end of each chapter. JAVA and Visual BASIC software can be provided for selected algorithms. To obtain access to the educational materials, contact the author by email at andrew-kusiak@uiowa.edu.

From the Back Cover:

Written by a world class expert in engineering design, this book introduces the reader to models,
frameworks, methodologies, and algorithms that have been applied with great success in industry.
These approaches have significantly reduced product development cycle time and improved product
and process quality and reliability. Engineering design impacts a wide range of tasks, beginning with
the recognition of customer needs and ending with environmentally friendly manufacturing and
material reclamation. Engineering Design: Products, Processes, and Systems is unique in
presenting a process view that allows for uniform treatment of problems and issues over the entire
product life cycle. The reader will acquire a complete understanding of process modeling
methodologies, process reengineering, organization of design teams, design for manufacturing, and
problem solving from tolerance design to product modularity and negotiation among members of the
design team.

The book is liberally illustrated with industrial case studies and examples and is written
to meet the needs of senior undergraduate and graduate students, designers, systems analysts,
software engineers, managers, and other practitioners. With its emphasis on modeling and analysis of
the design process, the book is of interest to numerous disciplines, including industrial, mechanical,
electrical, systems, and software engineering, as well as to various business areas such as operations
management and management science. Significant portions of the material apply to the service
sector, including health care.
