The Integrated Product and Process Design and Development (IP2D2) method is quickly becoming the new standard for the rapid creation of competitively priced, high-quality products. IP2D2 indicates, in the broadest sense, the overlapping, interacting, and iterative nature of all of the aspects of the product realization process. The method is a continuous process whereby a product's cost, performance and features, value, and time-to-market lead to a company's increased profitability and market share. This new text/reference reflects the sweeping changes this approach has brought to traditional engineering design courses and to industry.
Carefully organized, with sections on each major stage of the approach, Integrated Product and Process Design and Development: The Product Realization Process is the first complete treatment of this new direction in engineering. The book is designed to help you cultivate an attitude toward design that encourages creativity and innovation, while considering the equally important considerations of customer requirements and satisfaction, quality, reliability, manufacturing methods and material selection, assembly, cost, the environment, and scheduling. Extensively class tested in senior- and graduate-level engineering design courses at the University of Maryland, the book gives equal time to conceptual and practical aspects. As each concept is introduced and explained, two book-long examples provide you with a realistic sense of how a product's creation progresses through its various stages. Numerous checklists and other practical guidelines help you learn to apply the IP2D2 method to your own work.
Students and newly graduated engineers will appreciate the modern perspective that more nearly reflects what they will encounter in practice than what is obtainable in traditional texts. For more experienced practicing engineers, this is the new information they need to keep up with recent rapid changes and stay marketable today and in the future.

About the author (1997)

Dr. Magrab is a Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Maryland, College Park, MD. He has conducted extensive research in the areas of vibrations and acoustics, and recently, his research efforts have focused on the integration of design and manufacturing. He joined the Department of Mechanical Engineering after spending more than twelve years at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Gaithersburg, MD, where he held several supervisory positions including Chief of the Sound Section. Prior to going to NIST, he was a Professor of Mechanics at the Catholic University of America, Washington, D. C. He has authored numerous journal publications and six books on subjects including vibrations, noise control, dynamic measurements, integrated design, and MATLAB. Sijthoff and Noordhoff published his graduate level textbook VIBRATIONS OF ELASTIC STRUCTURAL MEMBERS in 1979. Dr. Magrab is a fellow of ASME and a registered Professional Engineer in the State of Maryland.
