Advert Description

Oxfam Bookshop Harrogate An unmarked copy of this book presenting a general theoretical framework that may be used to solve complexity problems in engineering, science, and even such non-technical areas as economic planning and administration. Glossy boards unmarked. Small neat owner label top ffep. Otherwise internally unmarked, as new. xii, 300 pp; b&w illus. Nam P. Suh focussed his axiomatic design theories on methods to understand and deal with complexity. Suh is a well-respected designer and researcher in the fields of manufacturing and composite materials. He is best known for his systems that aim to speed up and simplify the process of design for manufacturing. The 'axioms' in axiomatic design refer to a process to help engineers reduce design specifications down to their simplest components, so that the engineers can produce the simplest possible solution to a problem. Complexity, besides being a key area of burgeoning research in disciplines interested in complex systems and chaos theory (like computer science and physics), is a complicating factor in engineering design that many engineers find difficult to overcome. Suh's multidisciplinary exploration of complex systems is meant to eliminate much of the confusion and allow engineers to accommodate complexity within simple, elegant design solutions.
