Product Design and Manufacturing By A. K. Chitale and R. C. Gupta
Product Design and Manufacturing is Gtu Reference book for B.tech Mechanical Engineering Branch Students in Engineering Fourth Year by A. K. Chitale and R. C. Gupta.
This well-established and widely adopted text, now in its Fifth Edition, continues to provide a comprehensive coverage of the morphology of the design process. It gives a holistic view of product design, which has inputs from diverse fields such as aesthetics, strength analysis, production design, ergonomics, reliability and quality, Taguchi methods and quality with six sigma, and computer applications. The text discusses the importance and objectives of design for environment, and describes the various approaches by which a modern, environment-conscious designer goes about the task of design for environment. Many examples have been provided to illustrate the concepts discussed. NEW TO THIS EDITION: Includes sections on welding processes, metal cutting theory, microfinishing operations, workplace layout from ergonomics considerations, noise, heating and ventilating and lighting. Gives Review Questions at the end of each chapter, with hints and solutions to some questions. Discusses various types of models used by designers. Designed primarily as a text for courses in mechanical engineering, production engineering, and industrial design and management, the book should also prove very handy for practising engineers. KEY FEATURES: Provides concepts from material science, which include inputs on ceramics, rubber, polymers and other materials to make the design idea physically realizable. Uses the modern Concurrent Design concept to satisfy diverse groups/areas such as marketing, vendors, production, and quality assurance. Considers the use of computers while analyzing modern techniques of prototyping, simulation of product and its use. Introduces AI, robots, AGV, PLC and AS/RS in manufacturing automation.
