Booknews
Illustrates how to design products, components or systems, across a wide range of industries, while taking into account such constraints as the ability to manufacture, reliability requirements, quality, cost and customer needs. In-depth treatment of how the consequences of various technical solutions are assessed in all life-cycle phases of a product, automatic idealization control for analysis, intelligent interactive CAD systems with real-time constraint checking, and methodology for simplification of the design process are included.
