Effective design and manufacturing, both of which are necessary to produce high-quality products, are closely related. However, effective design is a prerequisite for effective manufacturing. This new book explores the status of engineering design practice, education, and research in the United States and recommends ways to improve design to increase U.S. industry's competitiveness in world markets.require the inclusion of economic evaluations and consideration of alternative solutions. ... modern design methods, and even the customary senior design courses seldom treat the processes involved in sound contemporary design practice.
