Introduction to Geometry Construction

Part of the Springer Tracts in Mechanical Engineering book series (STME)


The design process starts with a need, as spelled out by the client. In engineering design, as well as in other design areas, the need is described by the client in rather ambiguous, fuzzy, sometimes contradictory terms. After a series of exchanges between client and designer, be this an engineer, an industrial designer, or an architect, the need is formulated in terms of a list of functional requirements, with some specific features that are spelled out as design specifications, or specs for brevity.
