Concurrent engineering (CE) can be termed the systematic approach to the concurrent design of products and their related processes, so that considerable reductions in time and cost can be achieved at both levels. This book aims to examine the relationships between the product design and process planning functions in the domain of concurrent engineering for the design and manufacture of discrete products. In essence all aspects relating to the manufacturability of a product design are analyzed in detail and various methodologies to achieve this end are presented. The main topics dealt with by the author are: concurrent engineering principles; the role of product design and process planning in CE; product design methods; process planning methods; product design and process planning interactions for products with regular features; product design and process planning interactions for products with complex features; and various case studies illustrating the benefits of product design and process planning interactions in CE. This book should be of interest to practicing engineers in design and manufacturing; researchers in concurrent engineering; senior undergraduate/graduate students in manufacturing, mechanical and industrial engineering.
