Overview

Processes and Design for Manufacturing, Third Edition, examines manufacturing processes from the viewpoint of the product designer, investigating the selection of manufacturing methods in the early phases of design and how this affects the constructional features of a product. The stages from design process to product development are examined, integrating an evaluation of cost factors. The text emphasizes both a general design orientation and a systems approach and covers topics such as additive manufacturing, concurrent engineering, polymeric and composite materials, cost estimation, design for assembly, and environmental factors. Appendices with materials engineering data are also included.
