About this book

Introduction

An undergraduate textbook designed for courses involving design and manufacture. Part 1 covers the basics of design (process, specification, drawing, BS4500, standard components, bolts, gears, belts etc) and of manufacturing processes (cutting, casting, bulk deformation, sheet metal, powder forming, joining, surface treatment, quality control etc). Part 2 shows how these fundamentals can be integrated by linking design and manufacturing decisions, considering influences of quantity, materials, ergonomics, aesthetics etc and discussing the organisational information flows and controls required for a profitable product. Examples drawn from industry are included as appropriate.
