FEATURES/BENEFITS Fundamental approach is that reverse engineering and teardowns offer a new better paradigm for design instruction, permitting a modern learning cycle of experience, hypothesis, understanding, and then execution. Concrete experiences with hands-on products. Applications of contemporary technologies. Studies of systematic experimentation. Exploration of the boundaries of design methodology. Decision making for real product development. Discusses the foundation material of product design, including a philosophy for learning and implementing product design methods. Each chapter includes both basic and advanced techniques for particular phases of product development.Kevin Otto is the author of 'Product Design: Techniques in Reverse Engineering and New Product Development', published 2000 under ISBN 9780130212719 and ISBN 0130212717.
