Product & Process Design Principles: Synthesis, Analysis and Evaluation – Warre D. Seider, J. D. Seader, Dniel R. Lewin – 2nd Edition


One of the most important objectives in this text describes the strategies and approaches for the design of .

It covers () and environmental issues. The latest design strategies are described; most of which have been significantly improved with the advent of computers; and artificial intelligence. Several methods are used to perform comprehensive calculations and provide results that are easily visualized; including the use of computer programs for simulation and design optimization.
