Manufacturing and Product Design presents a fresh view on the world of industrial production: thinking in terms of abstraction levels combined with thinking in terms of trade-offs. The book invites its readers to distinguish between what is possible in principle for a certain process (as determined by physical law); what is possible in practice, i.e. the production method (as determined by industrial state-of-the-art); and what is possible at the level of a certain supplier, i.e. production equipment. By tackling the field of manufacturing processes from a different angle than existing approaches, this book makes the most out of the limited time that the reader has available. It gives the knowledge needed to not only create well-producible designs, but also to understand supplier needs in order to find the optimal compromise. Apart from improving design for production, this publication aims to not only change but actually raise the standards of thinking about producibility. Emphasizes the strong link between product design and choice of manufacturing processIntroduces the concept of a "production triangle” to highlight tradeoffs between function, cost, and quality for different manufacturing methodsBalanced sets of questions are included to stimulate the reader's thoughtsEach chapter ends with a section that gives hands-on information on the various production methods commonly found under that principle, as well as pointers for further reading
