Standards for engineering design and manufacturing


Standards for engineering design and manufacturing


Abstract / Description

Most books on standardization describe the impact of ISO and related organizations on many industries. While this is great for managing an organization, it leaves unanswered questions such as "what are the effects of standards on my designs?" and "how can I use standardization to benefit my work?" Standards for Engineering Design and Manufacturing provides hands-on knowledge for incorporating standards into the entire process from design bench to factory floor.
