Question description

Please write simple vocabulary as of an international student it writing the essay. it sold be about 7 pages including the work sited page. the point that i chose it is ( product design for manufacture and assembly ) page 9 in the book. the book name is Machine Elements In Mechanical Design fourth Edition. i would like to get a simple essay can you please let me know if you can do it. i do have the book if you want me to send it, i could not upload here because the filed is too big. write a summary about (Total Design) from the book Machine Elements In Mechanical Design fourth Edition

Hi there, It is unfortunate you left me stuck with this assignment. However, I was able to find some materials for the total designs but i was unable to find a source on product design for manufacture and assemblyI do not know what we are going to do because i am interested in helping you with this assignment. If you have time, please look for materials on the same and let me know. i will also continue looking for the sources.


Total design summary
Institutional Affiliation




According to Pugh (1991), “Total design is an integrated approach to product
engineering using a systematic and disciplined process to create innovative products that satisfy
customer needs” (p2). The approach encompasses identification of the market or user need
until selling of the produced product to satisfy human needs. Moreover, processes, people as
well as organization as are employed during the total design process. A mechanical designer
should be able to recognize mechanical systems, by applying various principles in engineering.
In order to perform competent mechanical design, a designer should have various skills that
are required to complete the task. Additionally, a designer should be able to integrate individual
machine elements to form a more comprehensive mechanical system. Additionally, the main
elements of a product relegalization process are essential for designers. More importantly, he
or she should be able to use the US customary Unit System as well as SI metric unit. Knowledge
of force and mass are vital in machine design, and thus a designer should be able to express
both in a unit system. The designer also should be able to present design calculations in a
manner that is professional, neat as well as orderly (Mott, 2004).
Total design
When designing a mechanical process, it is important to come up with a product that
aims at satisfying customer needs. Additionally, the designed product should be safe, efficient,
reliable, economical as well as practical to manufacture. Thus, it is essential to consider the
customer or the user of the product during the designing process. Customers include the
manufacturing engineer responsible for the production operations, as well as maintenance
personnel for the product, should be considered during total design activity.
The design should also be considerate of the operators of the machine or the process.
Therefore, a mechanical designer should be aware of the desires and expectations of the
customers before starting on the design process. If a need arises, a designer can use marketing



professionals to manage the expectations of the customers. Quality function deployment
method, QFD, can also be employed to identify all the essential characteristics as well as
performance factors desired by the customers. All factors that affect the designing of a product
are referred to product realization process, PRP. The simultaneous consideration of product
design along with manufacturing process design is known as the concurrent engineering (Mott,
The total design activity consists of four parts. Design core is the first part, and it is
made up of six phases. These include user need, product specification, conceptual design, detail
design, manufacture, and sales (Pugh, 1991). The six phases account for objectives of the
product to be designed during the period of designing.
The front-end of the design process is known as the market research. It forms the
initial phase of the design process as well as the most important stage of identifying the user
needs. This phase is important to ensure that the design competes favorably with other products
that already exist or may be designed in future. The outcome of market or user need is known
as a brief. It can be a simple statement or comprehensive documentation describing the true
requirements and needs of the end user. It is essential for designers to understand that for the
product to be successful, the design should be a team activity.
