Design Philosophy
What is Engineering? Engineering is not usually considered a science. Science is about discovering the natural. Engineering is creating the artificial. Engineers apply the principles of science and mathematics to develop solutions to problems. The main philosophy behind all of the engineering and engineering design activities is to serve the people, society and mankind. This is why the engineering design is defined as an activity to satisfy a need. A need is real only if it is defined and identified by a human.

What is Design?
Design is a interaction between what we want to achieve and how we want to satisfy them.

Design is a process of converting information that characterize the needs and requirements for a product into knowledge about the product.
Engineering design is creative at the beginning, and significance of creativity decreases towards the end of the process, Engineering design is iterative during the whole design process.

Engineering Design Process

Identify the Problem
Describe the challenge to be solved, including limits and constraints.

Research what others have done. Discover what materials are available.

Use your knowledge and creativity to come up with many solutions. Choose one idea and draw or make a model of it.

Make your solution.

Try It Out
Test your solution.

Make It Better
Evaluate how the solution worked and think of how to improve your design.

Engineering Design Process

Recognition of a customers need Market research identifies customers and needs R&D creates ideas that are relevant to an organizations capabilities Needs arise from dissatisfaction Technology push (examples : computers, audio) Definition of a problem or Task Design specification Selecting product ideas Compiling the requirement list Acquire & apply technical knowledge Identify resources Prioritize design goals & continue to refine

Engineering Design Process

Product definition Function Preliminary requirements list Solution requirements Cost target and budget




Engineering Design Process

Conceptual design This phase looks at the function requirement of the Product. The function are listed & complex functions are broken into simpler subfunctions. Determines the Principle of Solution. It is preceded by a Decision Procedure Abstract to identify essential problems Establish function structures Search for working principles to fulfill the sub-functions Combine working principles into working structures Select suitable combinations Evaluate against technical & cost criteria

Engineering Design Process

Design embodiment It starts from the concept and develops the definitive layout for the project Evaluate against Technical & Economic criteria Preliminary layout Optimize and complete form designs Check for errors and disturbing factors Prepare preliminary part list and production documents Embodiment design is characterized by repeated deliberation and verification. This requires approach that is progressive as well as iterative. The checklist Function, Working Principle, Layout, Safety, Ergonomics, Production, Assembly, Transport, Recycling, Maintenance, Costs, Quality control

Engineering Design Process

Prepare production documents :
Elaborate detailed drawings and parts list Complete production,assembly,transport and operating instructions Check all documents

Design review
Review and redesign focuses on achieving the performance, producibility, reliability and cost (As compared to what) objectives. Competitive benchmarking Reverse Engineering of competitors products Early bird gets the profit

Computer-Aided Design (CAD) is the technology concerned with the use of computer systems to assist in the creation, modification, analysis, and optimization of a Design. Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) is the technology concerned with the use of computer systems to plan, manage, and control manufacturing operations. Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE) is the technology concerned with the use of computer systems to analyze CAD geometry, allowing the designer to simulate and study how the product will behave.

Finite Element Analysis in Design

The continuum has an infinite number of degrees-of-freedom (DOF), while the discretized model has a finite number of DOF. This is the origin of the name, finite element method. The number of equations is usually rather large for most real-world applications of the FEM, and requires the computational power of the digital computer. The FEM has little practical value if the digital computer were not available. Advances in and ready availability of computers and software has brought the FEM within reach of engineers working in small industries, and even students Most commercial FEM software packages originated in the 1970s (ABAQUS, ADINA, ANSYS, MARK, PAFEC) and 1980s (FENRIS, LARSTRAN 80, SESAM 80.)

Finite Element Analysis in Design

FEA programs simulate static, dynamic, linear, nonlinear, thermal, modal, and random vibrations, and more. FEA solves many different problems out of which structural and thermal problems are most common for mechanical engineers. "Structural analysis finds deformations, strains, and stresses caused by structural loads such as force, pressure, and gravity. Thermal analysis finds temperatures, temperature gradients, and heat flow caused by thermal loads such as heat flux or heat power. Boundary conditions such as prescribed temperatures and convection coefficients also affect results.
