"Material selection is one of the most significant decisions an architect must make, yet it is often not addressed at the beginning of the design process. Likewise, students are typically taught about material and design as if they were unrelated. With the advent of integrated design/build programs, however, the relationship between a project's aesthetics and its materiality has never been more important." "Materials for Architectural Design provides the foundation for a strong design sensibility intertwined with material knowledge. Divided into five sections - glass, concrete, wood, metal and plastic - Materials for Architectural Design makes a thorough study of each material's properties, history, permutations and production techniques. Sixty case studies by today's most inventive architects from around the world - including Baumschlager + Eberle, Sean Godsell, Werner Sobek and ARO - show these materials put to imaginative use, illustrating how their application informed each building's ultimate form and structure."--BOOK JACKET.

The era of mass manufacturing of clothing and other textile products is coming to an end; what is emerging is a post-industrial production system that is able to achieve the goal of mass-customised, low volume production, where the conventional borders between product design, production and user are beginning to merge. To continue developing knowledge on how to design better products and services, we need to design better clothing manufacturing processes grounded in science, technology, and management to help the clothing industry to compete more effectively. Design of clothing manufacturing processes reviews key issues in the design of more rapid, integrated and flexible clothing manufacturing processes. The eight chapters of the book provide a detailed coverage of the design of clothing manufacturing processes using a systematic approach to planning, scheduling and control. The book starts with an overview of standardised clothing classification systems and terminologies for individual clothing types. Chapter 2 explores the development of standardised sizing systems. Chapter 3 reviews the key issues in the development of a garment collection. Chapters 4 to 7 discuss particular aspects of clothing production, ranging from planning and organization to monitoring and control. Finally, chapter 8 provides an overview of common quality requirements for clothing textile materials. Design of clothing manufacturing processes is intended for R&D managers, researchers, technologists and designers throughout the clothing industry, as well as academic researchers in the field of clothing design, engineering and other aspects of clothing production. Considers in detail the design of sizing and classification systems Discusses the planning required in all aspects of clothing production from design and pattern making to manufacture Overviews the management of clothing production and material quality requirements

Hailed as a groundbreaking and important textbook upon its initial publication, the latest iteration of Product Design for Manufacture and Assembly does not rest on those laurels. In addition to the expected updating of data in all chapters, this third edition has been revised to provide a top-notch textbook for university-level courses in product design and manufacturing design. The authors have added a comprehensive set of problems and student assignments to each chapter, making the new edition substantially more useful. See what’s in the Third Edition: Updated case studies on the application of DFMA techniques Extended versions of the classification schemes of the features of products that influence the difficulty of handling and insertion for manual, high-speed automatic, and robot assembly Discussions of changes in the industry such as increased emphasis on the use of surface mount devices New data on basic manufacturing processes Coverage of powder injection molding Recognized as international experts on the re-engineering of electro-mechanical products, the methods and guidelines developed by Boothroyd, Dewhurst, and Knight have been documented to provide significant savings in the product development process. Often attributed with creating a revolution in product design, the authors have been working in product design manufacture and assembly for more than 25 years. Based on theory yet highly practical, their text defines the factors that influence the ease of assembly and manufacture of products for a wide range of the basic processes used in industry. It demonstrates how to develop competitive products that are simpler in configuration and easier to manufacture with reduced overall costs.

Breaks down the treatment of each process into three categories: Knowledge, Application, and Development and organizes each process family based on common characteristics. Comprehensively illustrates, defines, and explains each process to provide the reader with an unequaled understanding of the process and its applications. Encourages an appreciation of the integration of design and manufacturing engineering activities that results in more practical, less expensive, and better designed products for the consumer. This item replaces 978-0-8311-3049-7. It is now a paperback/print-on-demand edition. Written by a team of educators with unmatched experience, in collaboration with a consortium of industrial representatives from Black and Decker, Boeing, Caterpillar, General Motors, Grumman, Tektronix, Texas Instruments, Westinghouse, and Xerox, Manufacturing Processes Reference Guide provides thorough descriptions of over 125 of the most important processes available to industry today. This important resource encompasses the entire spectrum of manufacturing, from "Abrasive Jet Machining" to "Wire Drawing." Used with Fundamental Principles of Manufacturing Processes, the two books provide all the information needed to identify the ideal process for a specific manufacturing requirement. "Todd, Allen, and Alting's book is intended to help integrate design and manufacturing engineering activities by providing students of engineering and designers in industry with easily accessible information about common manufacturing processes. The authors rightfully believe that the first step in designing a component is for the designer to become familiar with the processes that will be used in its manufacture. This always leads to more practical, less expensive, and better designed products. [Recommended for] upper-division undergraduate through professional." SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY Magazine.
