The Mechanical Design Process by David G. Ullman

The Mechanical Design Process combines a practical overview of the design process with case material and real-life engineering insights. Ullman's work as an innovative designer comes through consistently, and has made this book a favorite with readers. This book conveys the "flavor" of design, addressing both traditional engineering topics, as well as real-world issues like creative thinking, synthesis of ideas, visualization, teamwork, sense of customer needs and product success factors, and the financial aspects of design alternatives, in a practical and motivating manner. New in this edition are examples from industry and over twenty online templates that help students prepare complete and consistent assignments while learning the material.
