Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hailed as a groundbreaking and important textbook upon its initial publication, the latest iteration of Product Design for Manufacture and Assembly does not rest on those laurels. In addition to the expected updating of data in all chapters, this third edition has been revised to provide a top-notch textbook for university-level courses in product design and manufacturing design. The authors have added a comprehensive set of problems and student assignments to each chapter, making the new edition substantially more useful.

See what 's in the Third Edition:

  • Updated case studies on the application of DFMA techniques
  • Extended versions of the classification schemes of the features of products that influence the difficulty of handling and insertion for manual, high-speed automatic, and robot assembly
  • Discussions of changes in the industry such as increased emphasis on the use of surface mount devices
  • New data on basic manufacturing processes
  • Coverage of powder injection molding

Recognized as international experts on the re-engineering of electro-mechanical products, the methods and guidelines developed by Boothroyd, Dewhurst, and Knight have been documented to provide significant savings in the product development process. Often attributed with creating a revolution in product design, the authors have been working in product design manufacture and assembly for more than twenty-five years. Based on theory yet highly practical, their text defines the factors that influence the ease of assembly and manufacture of products for a wide range of the basic processes used in industry. It demonstrates how to develop competitive products that are simpler in configuration and easier to manufacture with reduced overall costs.

Book News Annotation:

Industrial engineering professors from the University of Rhode Island introduce the principles of designing for ease of manufacture and assembly to reduce costs, and outline the design process for printed circuit boards, machining, injection molding, sheet metalworking, die casting, powder metal processing, sand casting, and hot forging. Much of the methodology involves analytical tools that allow engineers to predict the manufacturing and assembly costs of a proposed product before detailed design has taken place. The addition of problems to the third edition makes it suitable for textbook use. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

"Now in its third edition, this volume features new problem sets and student assignments, making this respected reference work now even more suitable for use in product design and design for manufacture courses. Chapters have been updated from previous editions with more recent case studies of the application of design for manufacture and assembly (DFMA) techniques, important industry changes, and emphasis on current trends such as design for power injection molding and surface mount devices. Each chapter also includes updated cost information on materials, labor, and machine operations"--
