This textbook has been developed for students of engineering design, industrial design and industrial engineering. The contents emphasize the design of products that have an engineering content, although most of the principles and approaches are also relevant to the design of other products and systems. The first part of the book offers an overview of the nature of design activity, the design process and design methods in general. The chapters constitute a manual of design methods, presented in an independent learning format. The book concludes by outlining a strategic approach to the design process, which utilizes the most appropriate combination of creative and rational methods to suit the designer and the design project. The book has been designed to be used in conjunction with projects and exercises that require the analysis and clarification of design problems.

Concentrates on basic approaches to design for a wide range of engineering products emphasizing problem formulation, conceptual and embodiment design as well as a mix of creative and systematic techniques which together can be used to resolve product design problems. Completely updated and revised this edition contains a new chapter on design for quality and numerous new examples.From the Back Cover:
Written in a clear and readable style by an experienced author of teaching texts, Engineering Design Methods is an integrated design textbook that presents specific methods within an overall strategy from concept to detail design. It also outlines the nature of design thinking, and sets it within broader contexts of product development and design process management. The book is much more than a manual of procedures; throughout, there is discussion and explication of the principles and practice of design.
Building on the outstanding success of the previous three editions, this new edition cements the position of Engineering Design Methods at the forefront of engineering and industrial design as an essential text not only for students and lecturers but also for practitioners. The book promotes a flexible approach to the design process, and provides explicit, step-by-step advice on how to implement several separate design methods that have been shown to be of value in both education and practice.
This revised fourth edition -
“Engineering Design Methods... is a valuable contribution to the engineering design literature. The engineering design methods presented are those that are of practical significance and the book is a must for anyone wishing to raise the standard of their design work. The design methods are described clearly and succinctly, examples are used to illustrate principles and design strategies are presented that show how the methods are best employed”.
Professor Graham Thompson, Department of Mechanical Engineering, UMIST, UK
“Professor Nigel Cross’ treatment of Engineering Design is a singularly successful treatment for my courses because it is short and concise enough to be read by virtually all students. Furthermore, his interpretations are open enough to allow the inquiring mind to fill out the picture, incorporating and extending the ideas to fit the reflective designer’s own needs.”
Professor Larry Leifer, Stanford Center for Design Reseach, Stanford University, USA
“This book is an excellent book as a textbook for design methodology both for undergraduate and graduate level... Students will gain a firm foundation of design methods from problem definition to design evaluations from this book”.
Professor Kun-Pyo Lee, Department of Industrial Design, Korea Institute of Science and Technology, Korea
