” by George E . Dieter and Linda C . Schmidt”.
The fourth edition of Engineering Design represents the reorganization and expansion of the topics and the introduction of a coauthor, Dr. Linda Schmidt of the Mechanical Engineering Department, University of Maryland. As in previous editions, Engineering Design is intended to provide a realistic understanding of the engineering design process. It is broader in content than most design texts, but it now contains more prescriptive guidance on how to carry out design. The text is intended to be used in either a junior or senior engineering course with an integrated hands-on design project. The design process material is presented in a sequential format in Chapters 1 through 9. At the University of Maryland we use Chapters 1 through 9 with junior students in a course introducing the design process. Chapters 10 through 17 present more intense treatment of sophisticated design content, including materials selection, design for manufacturing, and quality. The complete text is used in the senior capstone design course that includes a complete design project from selecting a market to creating a working prototype. Students move quickly through the first nine chapters and emphasize chapters 10 through 17 for making embodiment design decisions. 

The authors recognize deterrents to learning the design process. Design is a complex process to teach in a short amount of time. Students are aware of a myriad of design texts and tools and become overwhelmed with the breadth of design approaches. One challenge of the design instructor’s task is to convey to the student that engineering design is not a mathematical equation to be solved or optimized. Another is to provide students with a cohesive structure for the design process that they can use with a variety of design methods and software packages. Toward that end, we have adopted a uniform terminology throughout and reinforced this with a new section at the end of each chapter on New Terms and Concepts. We have emphasized a cohesive eight-step engineering design process and present all material in the context of how it is applied. Regardless, we are strong in the belief that to learn design you must do design. We have found that Chapter 4, Team Behavior and Tools, is helpful to the students in this regard. Likewise, we hope that the expanded discussion of design tools like bench marking, QFD, creativity methods, functional decomposition and synthesis, and the decision process and decision tools will benefit the students who read this book. 

Many new topics have been added or expanded. These include: work breakdown structure, tolerances (including GD&T), human factors design, rapid prototyping, design against wear, the role of standardization in DFMA, mistake-proofing, Six Sigma quality, and the make-buy decision. Finally we have introduced different approaches to the steps of design so that students appreciate the range of practice and scholarship on the topic of engineering design. 

Changes to the Fourth Edition: 

• New topics added or expanded such as work breakdown structure, AHP, tolerances
(including GD&T), human factors design, design against wear, the role of standardization in DFMA, mistake-proofing, and six sigma quality. As a new feature, each chapter ends with a list of new concepts and terms. Expanded examples add realism to key topics. 
• Two additional chapters are available to the student at the text website. These are:
Chapter 17 – Legal and Ethical Issues in Engineering Design Chapter 18 – Economic Decision Making
