About the BookContent

The text-book aims at presenting the topics of Product Design and Value Engineering in a simple
manner. Each topic of the book has been arranged in such a way that reader is empowered with
in-depth knowledge in the subject.
First five chapters contains topics on Product Design. Product development is a challenging task
and can be learnt through experience. Many good universities have incorporated this course
to introduce the challenges and difficulties in product development process, to the students.
A product can be developed at lowest possible cost if the process is planned systematically.
Initial few chapters of the book cover systematic procedure for “Product Development” in detail,
supported with relevant examples.
Subsequent chapters of the book cover the Value Engineering concept. Value Engineering
approach is used to eliminate the unnecessary cost from the product. The implementation
of Value Engineering concept has been elaborately described as value engineering job plan
along with value engineering project selection, FAST diagram and Life Cycle Cost with relevant
case studies. Last chapters deals with practical aspects of manufacturing, affecting the design
considerations.
The salient features of this book are:
F Lucid description of Product Development process and Value Engineering
Concept.
F Illustrative examples within the text.
F Comprehensive summary at the end of each chapter.
F Exercise at the end of each chapter.
F Solved sample papers (GTU).
F Case study of window air conditioner to illustrate product development process.
F Value Engineering Training programme course.
F Illustrative engineering drawings to understand design for manufacture.
The book covers major syllabus of the subject Product Design and Value Engineering (Subject
code 171904 for B.E. Semester VII of Mechanical Engineering branch)prescribed by Gujarat
Technical University (GTU) and other Indian Universities. The book will also be of immense help
to the practicing engineers.
