This book looks at how to design complex products that have many components with intricate relationships and requirements.
It also discusses how to manage processes involved in their lifecycle, from concept generation to disposal, with the objectives of increasing customer satisfaction, quality, safety, and usability and meeting program timings and budgets.
Part I covers systems engineering concepts, issues, and bases in product design.
Part II examines quality, human factors, and safety engineering approaches.
Part III describes important tools and methods used in these fields, and Part IV includes other relevant integration topics, interesting applications of useful techniques, and observations from a few "landmark" product development case studies.
