Description

"Sharing Experience in Engineering Design" is based on papers presented at the Engineering and Product Design Education Conference E & PDE 2002. This volume is vital reading for all those students, practitioners, and professionals operating in the field of product and engineering design and education. The contents include: the integration of design and business issues in the engineering curriculum; what are the qualities and competencies required by product design employers?; product design courses lead the way in providing the graduate with the necessary skills to get the top job; designing for a sustainable future promoting outreach through the use of case studies - degree design exploring creativity from the start; assessing creativity theory and practice; developing an appreciation of the complex interactions between life cycle analysis and design for manufacture; strategic design and product development a practical application of business process re engineering in bespoke manufacturing; engineering design modules teaching by projects; product design project teaching, using athletic transport artefacts as the vehicle; sketching a dying art?; and overcoming human barriers to knowledge based systems in design.
