Engineering Design in the Multi-Discipline Era is about systems engineering – in the sense of an integrated approach to engineering design. The very nature of modern integrated systems means that they necessitate multidisciplinary design and so the audience encompasses a wide range of traditional domains, including mechanical and electronic engineering, manufacturing and support and, of course, those who already regard themselves as systems engineers. In reality, the engineering of integrated systems must be multi-disciplinary. In a very real sense, a wide range of professions need to regard themselves as systems engineers, although the multidisciplinary team must include someone whose expertise is specifically
the ‘understanding of systems’.

This important and practical book will be of considerable interest to engineers in manufacturing, automotive, aerospace, machinery, and other industries where mechatronic design, development, and systems integration are developed or employed. This includes professionals involved in design, research, development, and maintenance of integrated systems. Also students, who can be shown the need for a multi-disciplinary
approach to engineering, especially at the design stage.
