MEMB 322: Mechanical Design Process

Purpose of Design
Create a physically recognizable object. Create an object with economic worth and financial feasibility. Choose an optimum alternative solution.

The four “C”s of Design

Creativity
• Requires creation of something that has not existed or not existed in the proposed state.

Complexity
• Requires decisions on many variables & parameters.

Create a useful product.

Develop a new way to do something.

Reduce cost, inconvenience, improve safety.

4“C“s
Choice
• Requires making choices between many possible solutions at all levels from basic concept to small detail.

Produce convenience, service, value.

Compromise
• Requires balancing multiple & sometimes conflicting requirements.
