Build the essential design skills you need to succeed in the industry! Eric Salt and Robert Rothery's Design for Electrical and Computer Engineers guides you through each stage of the engineering process, from start to finish. As you work through the text, you'll develop a trong theoretical framework and master practical techniques that you can rely on throughout your academic and professional careers. You'll learn how to define a customer's needs and the design problem, synthesize solutions, evaluate alternatives, and complete the systems level design. The text also addresses the important issues of documentation and testing. In addition, you'll find a number of examples and templates throughout the text, including suggested outlines for design documents such as design specifications, project plans, and test plans. Features Presents a step-by-step methodology for engineering design. A case study elaborates concepts introduced in the text. A chapter on project management provides practical suggestions for organizing design teams, scheduling tasks, monitoring progress, and reporting status of design projects. Includes practical templates and system-level design tools that you can use in your design course, capstone projects, and as a practicing engineer. Explains both creative and linear thinking and relates the types of thinking to the productivity of the design engineers and novelty of the end design.Salt, J.
