Modeling and analysis of manufacturing systems
Unique in its focus on design and analysis methodologies for all areas of material flow management and system resource usage. Features research techniques that demonstrate the difference between opinions and findings, leading-edge approach to facility layout and a comprehensive queueing network. Progressive examples illustrate that there is more than one model for a system and case studies show integration of multiple techniques for realistic model building and problem solving.
The third edition of this well-used wood, metals and plastic workbook closely matches the new Study Design. The focus of the workbook is on developing and refining key skills, through relevant and engaging activities. Students will buy one book or the other (Nelson Product Design and Technology VCE Units 1-4 Workbook: Textiles) and some of the pages are designed to be directly used as part of their folio. This workbook reinforces the student book material, and gives it practical application.
Building prototypes and models is an essential component of any design activity. Modern product development is a multi-disciplinary effort that relies on prototyping in order to explore new ideas and test them sufficiently before they become actual products. “Prototyping and Modelmaking for Product Designers” illustrates how prototypes are used to help designers understand problems better, explore more imaginative solutions, investigate human interaction more fully and test functionality so as to de-risk the design process. Following an introduction on the purpose of prototyping, specific materials, tools and techniques are examined in detail, with step-by-step tutorials and industry examples of real and successful products illustrating how prototypes are used to help solve design problems. Workflow is also discussed, using a mixture of hands on and digital tools. A comprehensive modern prototyping approach is crucial to making informed design decisions, and forms a strategic part of a successful designer’s toolkit.
