## Intelligent Design and ManufacturingFocuses on design and manufacturing and a variety of issues pertinent to successful techniques involving concurrent engineering. Considers product design and manufacturing constraints simultaneously, emphasizing the consideration of every element of the product's life cycle from concept through disposal. Examines such areas as quality, cost, scheduling and user needs. Design and manufacturing problems are thoroughly discussed and solutions are given by using numerous modern applications and implements, including basic artificial intelligence tools. |
