This third edition of Product Design for Manufacture and Assembly includes updating of the data in all chapters of the book. In addition, a comprehensive set of problems and student assignments have been added to each chapter. This is because the book has been used in the past as the assigned text for university-level courses and the addition of these problem sets has made the new edition substantially more useful as a text book. The overall aim is to provide a text that can not only serve as a reference text for design and manufacturing engineers in industry, but will also serve as a basic text for courses in product design and design for manufacture. A comprehensive coverage of the factors that influence the ease of assembly and manufacture of products for a wide range of the basic processes used in industry is provided.

The introductory chapter has been updated to include more recent case studies of the application of design for manufacture and assembly (DFMA) techniques in industry, while still illustrating the effect that DFMA has had on U.S. industry as a whole. In Chapters 3 and 5, the extended versions of the classification schemes of the features of products that influence the difficulty of handling and insertion for manual, high-speed automatic and robot assembly have been added. This allows realistic student assignments to be added to these chapters. The chapter on printed circuit board assembly (Chapter 6) has been updated to reflect the changes in industry that have taken place since the previous edition, in particular the increased emphasis on the use of surface-mounted devices.

The remaining chapters on basic manufacturing processes have been updated with more recent data and comprehensive sets of problems and assignments added to each chapter. In Chapter 1 on design for powder metal processing, a discussion on design for powder injection molding has been added, as this technique has become more widely used in industry.

Each chapter includes some cost information on materials, labor, and machine operations. This information is representative of typical costs at the time of publication and does not necessarily indicate costs applicable at the current time. Costs obviously fluctuate over a period of time. The relative costs indicated in these data are probably suitable for a reasonable comparison between product designs and processing methods to be made.

As for the previous editions, we thank the various companies that have supported research on DFMA at the University of Rhode Island and the graduate students who have contributed to the research. The techniques developed from this research have become widely used in industry and have had a significant influence on the development of more competitive products that are both simpler in configuration and easier to manufacture with reduced overall costs.

Preface to the Second Edition

This second edition of Product Design for Manufacture and Assembly includes three new chapters, describing the processes of sand casting, investment casting, and hot forging. These chapters, combined with the chapters describing design for machining, injection molding, sheet metalworking, die casting, and powder metals, cover a wide range of the most basic forming processes used in industry.

In addition, substantial material has been added to the introductory chapter illustrating the effects that the application of design for manufacture and assembly (DFMA) has had on U.S. industry as a whole. Chapter 2, dealing with the selection of materials and processes for manufacture, now includes further material describing material selection specifically and the economic ranking of processes using a new software tool.

Chapter 3, dealing with product design for manual assembly, includes an updated special section dealing with the effect of design on product quality. Finally, additional material has been added to Chapter 15 discussing links between computer-aided design (CAD) solid models and design analysis tools.

As for the previous edition, we thank the various companies who have supported research on DFMA at the University of Rhode Island and the graduate students who have contributed to the research. We particularly acknowledge the help of Allyn Mackay, on whose work the new chapter on investment casting is largely based.

Finally, thanks are due to Shirley Boothroyd for typing much of the new material and to Kenneth Fournier for preparing some of the additional artwork.

Preface to the First Edition

We have been working in the area of product design for manufacture and assembly (DFMA) for over 20 years. The methods that have been developed have found wide application in industry—particularly U.S. industry. In fact, it can be said that the availability of these methods has created a revolution in the product design business and has helped to break down the barriers between design and manufacture; it has also allowed the development of concurrent or simultaneous engineering.
