Innovative Conceptual Design: Theory and Application of Parameter Analysis

Innovative Conceptual Design: Theory and Application of Parameter Analysis Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Conceptual design, along with need identification and analysis, make up the initial stage of the design process. Conceptual design encompasses the generation of concepts and their integration into system-level solutions, leading to a relatively detailed design. This innovative text is devoted to the crucial initial design stage and focuses on parameter analysis. This methodology helps identify critical issues, or parameters, of the design and proposes configuration-specific solutions. The authors present real-world case studies. The book will appeal to engineering students, as well as to practicing engineers, architects, and product development managers.

Synopsis:

Theory and applications of conceptual design, the initial stage of engineering design.

Synopsis:

This book is devoted to the initial stage of the design process: need analysis, leading to a set of design requirements, and conceptual design. It focuses on parameter analysis, a methodology that helps identify critical issues (parameters) of the design and propose configuration-specific solutions. Numerous examples and real-world case studies are included.
