Abstract [en]

Several textbooks on systematic product development and design methodology have been published during the nineties. This literature, in English, is to a large extent based on recent international design research. However, these textbooks are primarily of more abstract character, treating only the product development process and design methodology. In Scandinavia, there has been a lack of a modem textbook on Product Development and Design in a Scandinavian language, particularly for the shorter educational programs (bachelor level) in Mechanical Engineering and Engineering Design. Besides the product development process and design support methods, also industrial design and engineering design should be treated; materials selection and dimensioning, production methods, quality, robust design and tolerances, design of experiments, computer modelling and simulation, optimisation, visualisation and communication, creativity support, cost calculations, project planning/handling, intellectual property and patents.
