Design Tools for Engineering Teams: An Integrated Approach (International Social Security Series)

Design Tools for Engineering Teams: An Integrated Approach (International Social Security Series) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Thriving in today's new speed-driven, business-oriented economy requires more than the ability to operate the newest CAD package or apply the latest engineering spec. As technology continues to evolve, aspects of design once relegated to an individual (e.g., cost, time, quality, market need, and customer requirements) are increasingly becoming the concern of every member of the project team. That's why Design Tools for Engineering Teams introduces readers to the engineering design process using a holistic, project-oriented approach. From concept through delivery of the final product, a recurring engineering scenario is used to guide readers to an understanding of how one aspect of design influences another. It becomes clear how the responsibilities of designers, technicians, and engineers overlap and interface with all aspects of the engineering and business process. The result is a book that serves as a timeless guide to making sound decisions, communicating effectively, defining and solving problems, and functioning efficiently in a team environment where change is the only constant.

Book News Annotation:

Emphasizing learning to learn and love change, a veteran technical educator and a training and development specialist offer community college and university engineering students a whole systems thinking view of how all business aspects affect the engineer and the product design process. Includes team activities, industry scenarios (from designing airplane parts to towns), color illustrations, toolbox summaries, and lined pages for notes.
