Complexity by Nam P. Suh
Book DescriptionNam P. Suh focussed his axiomatic design theories on methods to understand and deal with complexity. Suh is a well-respected designer and researcher in the fields of manufacturing and composite materials. He is best known for his systems that aim to speed up and simplify the process of design for manufacturing. The 'axioms' in axiomatic design refer to a process to help engineers reduce design specifications down to their simplest components, so that the engineers can produce the simplest possible solution to a problem. Complexity, besides being a key area of burgeoning research in disciplines interested in complex systems and chaos theory (like computer science and physics), is a complicating factor in engineering design that many engineers find difficult to overcome. Suh's multidisciplinary exploration of complex systems is meant to eliminate much of the confusion and allow engineers to accommodate complexity within simple, elegant design solutions.

Books By Author Nam P. Suh
Axiomatic Design and Fabrication of Composite Structures, Hardback (December 2005)
Presents an integrated approach to the design and manufacturing of products made of advanced composites. This book is designed to teach students and practicing engineers how to streamline and improve the design process for parts and machines made out of composite materials by focusing on the behaviour of composites and their relationships.
Axiomatic Design, Hardback (May 2001)
This text book is for senior and graduate engineers. It should be used for senior and advanced design classes. It follows Suh's other book with OUP, Principles of Design (OUP, 1990). Suh has proposed axiomatic design as a means of creating the science base for the field of design.
Principles of Design, Hardback (April 1990)» View all books by Nam P. Suh
Based on research programmes at MIT's Laboratory for Manufacturing and Productivity, this volume outlines the principles of design and constitutes an exposition of the design axioms and their applications. It aims to bring a scientific approach to the decision-making process related to manufacture.
