Engineering Capstone Design by Bahram NassersharifStructured with a practical approach, Engineering Capstone Design guides engineering students to successfully manage capstone design projects. The book addresses the challenge of open-ended design projects, often in a team-based format, discussing team member roles, communication, and cooperation. It incorporates accreditation requirements and provides a modern framework for working with industry, reinforced by the inclusion of case studies. Offers a structured process for capstone design, responsive to ABET accreditation requirements Explains how to manage design projects under critical timelines and budgets Covers essential topics and steps in a capstone design sequence, including defining, conceiving, presenting, prototyping, building, testing, and redesigning Considers industry perspectives, as well as design competitions Includes case studies for a look into industry experience In addition to guiding engineering students conducting capstone design projects, this book will also interest industry professionals who are engaged in product development or design problem-solving.
Computational by Design by Viktor MalakucziThe contemporary material culture--everyday objects surrounding us--is dominated by mass manufactured products, but Digital Fabrication together with Computational Design (also called generative or parametric design) promises a shift towards substantially personalizable products, in a relatively cost-effective way. Considering this shift an opportunity for designers, the book argues that in order to consolidate the practice of developing personalizable products, designers need to change their focus from convergent to divergent user needs and desires, leaving room for the creative contributions of the users in the design of their objects, thus converting them from simple users to (computational) co-designers. Albeit such "on-demand" products are still rare in the everyday environment, there are numerous appreciable examples, which led to the recognition of six recurring personalization principles--or user motivations--of both mechanical and cognitive nature. Based on these, the book proposes a design approach the systematic replicating the observed principles on any product typology, with the support of a new design tool: a canvas that guides the designer's thinking towards product concepts to which personalization is essential. The proposed tool might help designers to spread personalisable design across many product categories, thus creating new business opportunities coherently with the recent development of the Industry 4.0 paradigm. On the long term, this might promote a more active role of the user in shaping the material culture, both through improving functionality and through new ways of creating meaning.

IoT Product Design and Development by Ahmad FattahiIoT Product Design and Development Learn to incorporate IoT products into the process of building a product Internet of Things (or IoT) is currently one of the central building blocks of industry. It is the driving technology of the connected world--be it smart cars, smart homes, smart factories, or smart cities. Industrial IoT (IIoT) is one of the most impactful areas of the global market, where it has fundamentally altered industries as varied as manufacturing, electronics, automotive, consumer goods, healthcare, and process industries like oil and gas, among others. As such, it is essential that engineers working in these fields improve their IoT knowledge to keep pace with this growing demand. IoT Product Design and Development offers an accessible entry point to the methods, techniques, and best practices necessary to add IoT onto an existing product or to build new IoT products wholesale. To accomplish this, the volume examines product design requirements for industrial, business, and consumer applications. Relying on real-world examples, the book provides a blueprint of the creation process, including tips on best practices and common pitfalls. Readers will thereby gain the tools to bring IoT to specific industries and job functions. IoT Product Design and Development readers will also find: Concise content that is targeted to what practitioners need to know without the academic jargon In-depth case studies related to power distribution systems, airports, and consumer home products Diagrams and tables used liberally to present concepts in a visual way Additional sidebar examples are included throughout the book to highlight key issues like IoT security and product lifecycle IoT Product Design and Development is a useful reference for professional mechanical, electrical, and industrial engineers, as well as IoT product managers, business leads, software and hardware professionals, and data professionals.
Sustainable Product Design and Development by Anoop Desai; Anil MitalThis book outlines the process of sustainable product design and development. It presents design guidelines that help prolong the life of a product and minimize its environmental impact. These guidelines specifically enable product design for end-of-life (EoL) objectives such as reuse, recycling and remanufacturing. Sustainable Product Design and Development also presents mathematical models that will help the designer determine the cost of designing sustainable products. This cost can be computed early during the design stage of a product. Sustainable Product Design and Development presents different ways and means by which a product can address all three pillars of sustainability--environmental conservation, social sustainability, and economic sustainability. Various case studies are incorporated in different chapters. Case studies on designing products for assembly, disassembly and remanufacturing have been presented in their respective chapters. The book also provides an overview of global environmental legislation to help the reader grasp the importance of waste management and sustainable product design. This book is aimed at professionals, engineering students, environmental scientists, and those in the business environment.
The Professional Skills Handbook for Engineers and Technical Professionals: Beyond the Numbers by Kevin RetzThis new handbook covers a wide range of engineering skills generally not taught in today's college-level technical programs. New engineers, though technically sound, need to master these other skills upon entering the professional world. Topics covered include teaming, root cause analysis, Lean manufacturing and management, presentation skills, innovation, and change leadership. Based on the author's 30 years of engineering and leadership experience, this work contains a wealth of practical tips and advice, as well as lessons learned the hard way. Portable and concise, the handbook can help new engineers thrive in and enjoy the technical world and their professional careers.
