Description - Product Design by Kevin Otto
Product Design presents an in-depth study of structured design processes and methods. *Fundamental approach - A systematic and methods-based strategy to product development. *Reverse engineering and product teardowns (dissection) offer a better paradigm for design instruction, permitting a modern learning cycle of experience, hypothesis, understanding, and new design execution. *Students see good design before they attempt design. *Systematic methods provide structure for the learning of design. *Concrete experiences with hands-on products. *Students gain confidence through improving commercial products. *Application of modern technologies. *Rapid numerical exploration links engineering analysis to design. *Studies of systematic experimentation. *Easy to follow explanations permit effective improvement of products. *Exploration of the boundaries of design methodology. *Authors explain underlying assumptions and limits to design methods. *Decision making for real product development. *Industrially proven methods and their underlying reasoning are explained. *Discusses foundation material of product design, including a philosophy for learning and implementing product design.
*Perspective is gained on what methods can do and will do in the future. *Each chapter includes both basic and advanced techniques for particular phases of product development. *Permits instructor customization of the material - High-level or in-depth study on the various aspects of product development. *Presents theory and concrete examples of emerging design techniques and principles. *The reader will study contemporary design-for-manufacturing, design-for-the-environment, prototyping, and design-for-assembly methods.
