Designing Capable and Reliable Products offers an introduction to the importance of capability, quality and reliability in product development. It introduces the concept of capable design, focusing on producing designs that meet quality standards and also looks at linking component manufacture and its process capability with failure rates. It provides an introduction to reliable design, incorporating the probabilistic concept of reliability into the product design. This quantitative and highly practical volume provides practical methods for analysing mechanical designs with respect to their capability and reliability. Practising engineers who have to hit definite standards for design will find this book invaluable, as it outlines methods which use physically significant data to quanitify engineering risks at the design stage. By obtaining more realistic measures of design performance, failure costs can be reduced. Taking product design as its central theme, this book is a very useful tool for postgraduate students as well as professional engineers.

MEDIA REVIEWS
It is a quantitative and highly practical volume. It provides practical methods for analyzing mechanical designs with respect to their capability and reliability. Practicing engineers who have to hit definite standards for design will find the book invaluable as it outlines methods which use physically significant data to quantify engineering risks at the early design stage. It appears to be a useful tool for postgraduate students as well as professional engineers. -Sampe Journal All of the numerous examples, useful appendices and easy-to-read text, make this an excellent book on the subject. -Sampe Journal 'Well structured practical approach to robust product design., 7 August, 2001' Reviewer: (p.robertson.2000@cranfield.ac.uk) from Bedfordshire, UK 'As a manufacturing engineer heavily involved in improving my company's product development process, this book presents not only the arguement that designers should work within manufacturing's capability, but also the methodology and techniques required to allow them to start doing so. Very well structured and highly readable, this text will appeal to all managers, engineers and researchers involved in the process of designing more robust products. It will also be of interest to those attempting to implement Design for Six Sigma.' Amazon customer review.
