1 Review
Conceptual design and need analysis make up the initial stage of the design process. Need analysis transforms the statement of a design task into a set of design requirements. Conceptual design encompasses the generation of concepts and integration into system-level solutions. This book is devoted to this crucial initial design stage. It focuses on parameter analysis, a methodology that helps identify critical issues (parameters) of the design and propose configuration-specific solutions. Numerous examples and real-world case studies are presented. This innovative text will appeal to engineering students, as well as practicing engineers, architects, and product development managers.
