Advances in Design examines recent advances and innovations in product design paradigms, methods, tools and applications. It presents fifty-two selected papers which were presented at the 14th CIRP International Design Seminar held in May 2004 as well as the invited keynote papers. Dr. Waguih ElMaraghy was the conference Chair and Dr. Hoda ElMaraghy was on the program committee. The International Institution for Production Research (CIRP), founded in 1951, is the top production engineering research college worldwide. The CIRP is subdivided into Scientific and Technical Committees (STC's) which are responsible for coordinating cutting-edge research as well as holding highly regarded annual international seminars to disseminate the results. The CIRP "Design" STC meeting is the forum in which the latest developments in the design field are presented and discussed.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Engineering design is a broad domain that encompasses a wide range of activities whose final aim is to determine all attributes of a product before it is manufactured, whether the product be a consumer good or a machine tool that is used to manufacture products.

In summary, Advances in Design covers the results of years of research, both fundamental and applied, in the area of advanced design and is a balanced and informative body of knowledge. The variety of topics covered by the book helps ensure that it will have areas of interest for people working in the area of design, be they from an academic or industrial background.

Dr. A. Soroka, Cardiff University, UK, I*PROMS News, July 2006

Meet the Author

Dr. Hoda ElMaraghy became the first woman Dean of Engineering in Canada in 1994 at the University of Windsor. Prior to that she was a Professor of Mechanical Engineering at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario where she was the founding Director of the Center for Flexible Manufacturing Research and Development. She has been named Canada Research Chair in Manufacturing Systems – in recognition of her leadership and distinguished contributions to the modern manufacturing systems theories and practice that have been implemented by numerous companies to advantage. She is author and co-author of 312 refereed journal and conference publications, contributor to 14 books, and author of 3 theses, 83 unpublished industrial reports and internal research reports. Dr. ElMaraghy is a Fellow of the Canadian Society of Mechanical Engineers (CSME) and the American Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME). She received the Association of Professional Engineers of Ontario's "Engineering Medal" for Research and Development and was named Hamilton's 1990 Woman of the Year in the Workplace Category.

Dr. Waguih ElMaraghy is a Professor of Engineering and Director of the Intelligent Manufacturing Systems (IMS) Centre in the Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering Department at the University of Windsor. Before joining Windsor, Dr. ElMaraghy was Professor and founding Director of the DA&MRL (Design Automation & Manufacturing Research) Centre of research excellence at the University of Western Ontario. He is an international expert in engineering design, manufacturing and industrial productivity and competitiveness. He has a number of Patents and has consulted for Industry, including on UNDP TOKTEN projects. Dr. ElMaraghy has carried out several national and international collaborative research projects, and is the author of over 150 publications, and over 100 Industry reports, and is currently supervising about twelve Masters and Ph.D. students. Dr. ElMaraghy has also contributed to a number of engineering design and manufacturing books, including being co-editor in 1989 of "Design Theory and Methodology", Proc. of the ASME First International Design Theory and Methodology Conference (DTM'89), (ASME Book no.: H00507, ISBN: 0-7918-0361-9). Dr. ElMaraghy is a registered Professional Engineer in the Province of Ontario (PEO). He is a senior member of the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME), a Fellow of the Canadian Society for Mechanical Engineering (CSME), and is a Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), and the CIRP (International Institute for Production Engineering Research).
