Manufacturing Engineering and Materials Processing #60: Integrated Product Design and Manufacturing Using Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancingby Campbell Campbell
Synopses & Reviews
This book addresses the preparation and application of design layout analyses with concurrent engineering teams in six steps that capture design intent and add value to design process. It offers tools for eliminating costly trial-and-error approaches and deliver economically viable products. The authors discuss product design techniques that alleviate the constraints between product definition, manufacturing, and inspection, the prediction of variation effects on product function and manufacturing efficiency, functional inspection techniques that include CMM measurement, optical comparators, and surface plate and functional gaging, and more.
Book News Annotation:
Applies the geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) standard to the simultaneous definition and design of a manufactured product and the processes necessary to produce it. Additionally, the book advocates that the standard be used as the primary medium of communication among concurrent engineering team members. Early chapters outline a six-step design layout methodology to guide system level design and a second methodology for developing the tooling and gaging designs. The second half of the book addresses product verification and the design of functional gages and fixtures. Campbell is a professor of engineering at William Rainey Harper College.
