The Mechanical Design Process – David G. Ullman – 4th Edition

The fourth edition of The Mechanical Process combines a practical overview of the process with case material and real-life insights. Ullman’s work as an innovative designer comes through consistently, and has made this a favorite with readers.

This book conveys the “flavor” of design, addressing both traditional engineering topics as well as real-world issues like creative thinking, synthesis of ideas, visualization, teamwork, sense of customer needs and product success factors, and the financial aspects of design alternatives, in a practical and motivating manner. New in this edition are examples from industry and over twenty on-line templates that help in preparation of complete and consistent assignments while the material.

This text is appropriate primarily for the Senior Design course taken by mechanical engineering students, though it can also be used in design courses offered earlier in the curriculum. Working engineers also find it to be a readable, practical overview of the .
