This text provides comprehensive and in-depth coverage of manufacturing processes from the standpoint of the product designer. Reflecting a growing need in industry and education for "design-driven" instruction, El Wakil demonstrates the importance of considering the selection of manufacturing method early in the design process, illustrating how the selection of method directly affects the geometric characteristics of products. Beginning with a study of the design process itself, readers are taken through the product development process. Augmenting the book's design orientation are chapters on environmentally conscious design and manufacturing, concurrent engineering, and cost as a factor affecting design and manufacturability. The book also includes a wealth of worked-out design examples and design projects, and an appendix on materials engineering that explains how materials are selected in the design of products. Processes and Design for Manufacturing provides engineers and product designers with a solidly quantitative, design-driven discussion of manufacturing processes that supports a systems approach to manufacturing.

"The text is outstanding. Just what we were looking for!" -- Bo Cook, Wabash Valley College
"My first impression is very positive. It's the only text that I found so far that has detailed, in-depth information on the processes but doesn't assume that everyone wants a totally quantitative approach. Most texts that aren't quantitative are too simplistic." -- John Troche, University of Akron
"Thorough and well written. This is an excellent book!" -- L. Georges Chedid, Wentworth Institute of Technology
"El Wakil's book is a very well presented and laid out text covering the fundamentals of virtually all manufacturing processes. An excellent required text for technology-level or introductory-level engineering classes." -- Ted Greene, Wentworth Institute of Technology
"The most wonderful part of the book is it has many review questions, problems, and design examples, which helps a lot in teaching and learning." -- Ning Fang, Utah State University
"I really like this text. The marriage of technical and economic principles makes it especially valuable." -- Tommy Gilbreath, University of Texas, Tyler
