Conceptual design, along with need identification and analysis, make up the initial stage of the design process. Conceptual design encompasses the generation of concepts and their integration into system-level solutions, leading to a relatively detailed design. This innovative text is devoted to the crucial initial design stage and focuses on parameter analysis. This methodology helps identify critical issues, or parameters, of the design and proposes configuration-specific solutions. The authors present real-world case studies. The book will appeal to engineering students, as well as to practicing engineers, architects, and product development managers.

Book Description:

Conceptual design and need analysis make up the initial stage of the design process. Need analysis transforms the statement of a design task into a set of design requirements. Conceptual design encompasses the generation of concepts and integration into system-level solutions. This book is devoted to this crucial initial design stage. It focuses on parameter analysis, a methodology that helps identify critical issues (parameters) of the design and propose configuration-specific solutions. Numerous examples and real-world case studies are presented. This innovative text will appeal to engineering students, as well as practicing engineers, architects, and product development managers.

Review:

"It is a well-written and highly readable book, and is to be recommended for its refreshing approach to innovation in conceptual design." A. Rothwell, Delft University of Technology
