Integrated Product Design and Manufacturing Using Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing

Integrated Product Design and Manufacturing Using Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing Robert Campbell and Edward Roth, editors (C) 2002 Marcel Dekker, hardcover, 352 pp., $150.00 ISBN: 0824788907

The book addresses the preparation and application of design layout analyses with concurrent engineering teams in six steps that capture design intent and add value to the design process. Campbell and Roth discuss: product design techniques that alleviate the constraints between product definition, manufacturing, and inspection; the prediction of variation effects on product function and manufacturing efficiency; functional inspection techniques that include CMM measurement, optical comparators, and surface plate and functional gaging; viable elimination tactics for the artificial barriers that segregate design and manufacturing functions; verification concerns in product, inspection system, and manufacturing process design; and a real-life case study depicting the implementation of GD&T methods. The text will help streamline product design and inspection for mechanical, manufacturing, design, quality control, project, process, industrial, automation, automotive, and aerospace engineers; metrologists; and upper-level undergraduate, graduate, and continuing-education students in these disciplines.
