Principles of Engineering Design discusses design applicability to machine systems, the nature and scope of technical processes, technical systems, machine systems, the human design engineer, the design process, and cases related to methods and procedures. The text deals with the structure, mode of action, properties, origination, development, and systematics of such technical systems. It analyzes the design process in terms of case problems, modelling, structure, strategies, tactics, representation, and working means. It also describes in detail the general model of a methodical procedure: separate design steps are treated in a unified fashion from different perspectives. The text notes that the tasks and methods of design research involve the following: (1) Components—determining structural elements in the design process; (2) Sequence—determining a general procedural model for the design process with a minimum of failures; (3) Modifications—what changes in factors affect the design process; and (5) Tactics—selection for individual design operations to obtain optimal results. A case study exemplifies the significant stages of design of a welding positioner. The book is highly recommended for students and the practicing design engineer in various fields.
