Why are some products better than others? What is the definition of "better"? This course uses an inquiry-guided approach to explore the product design process via team design projects and laboratory exercises. Everyday products are examined from historical, societal, design, safety and manufacturing perspectives. Topics include ideation, sketching, design constraints, solid modeling, decision making, statistical quality control, manufacturing methods and engineering analysis. Students develop an appreciation for good design and the ability to communicate design ideas via 3-D solid models, written and oral reports.
