From the Back Cover:

Key Benefit: This unique book presents the story of four fictional engineers hired as part of a team designing a prototype for a mass- produced auto. It describes the problems they encounter and the tools they use to solve them. It provides an overview of basic design principles, from defining objectives to selecting a design strategy and creating simulations of testing and evaluation while introducing both technical and nontechnical factors to be considered in the business of engineering. Key Topics: This is an excellent overview of what an engineer does day-to-day that demystifies the design process and shows how engineers work as teams as well as the roles of ethics and marketing. Each chapter describes a day or an event in the lives of the engineers while presenting a wide range of important, relevant topics, including brainstorming; the importance of accurate documentation; computer use and mechanical testing; the role of failure in the design process; proper data organization, oral presentation skills, and technical writing. The book also presents current design tools and programming languages, such as AutoCAD, SPICE, C++, and MATLAB. Market: A valuable resource for any reader interested in engineering design.
