Axiomatic Design
By

Rating
Design education, research, and practice have recently seen considerable evolution as university programs, researchers, journals, and conferences systematize design as a discipline and science. Nam P. Suh's book Axiomatic Design: Advances and Applications contributes to this systematic and
scientific base and presents a fresh perspective on design, establishing a rational framework for the discipline. The book follows Suh's successful publication, The Principles of Design (OUP 1990), although the two books are substantially different in both content and approach. The first three
chapters of Axiomatic Design cover the fundamental principles of axiomatic design. The following chapters offer a complete treatment of the design of systems, software, materials and materials processing, manufacturing systems, and product design. Suh shows how a scientific and systematic approach
to design improves efficiency, productivity, savings, reliability, and quality for industries that currently rely on ad hoc design systems; Axiomatic Design contains the principles and practical knowledge necessary to achieve these improvements. Perfect for senior and graduate design and mechanical
engineering students as well as professional engineers, this unique text offers the tools necessary to design with ease and elegance and serves as a stepping-stone in the ever-evolving intellectual science of design.

Features

Includes numerous integrated case studies using axiomatic design tosolve real-life design challenges
Draws material from consulting cases with industrial firms throughout the world
Requires no prerequisite reading (The Principles of Design can be read for clarification)

"This is an original and innovative book, which builds upon and extends the area covered in Nam Suh's first book, The Principles of Design. Given Suh's eminence and far-sightedness, I think the book will be of considerable interest it a general readership, and particularly to university staff."
