TJ1185 .F875 2010  
This book will help readers gain an in-depth understanding of all the factors that impact tool success. Fully illustrated, readers will find practical design examples, cost analysis calculations, process data, operating parameters, and tips and techniques--all of the concrete knowledge needed to spark innovation and resolve complex tooling challenges.  Accompanying DVD includes video clips from the nine-DVD Fundamentals of Tool Design Video series.   [10/16]
♦  The industrial design reference + specification book : all the details industrial designers need to know but can never find / Daniel F. Cuffaro ... [and six others] ; updated materials provided by Issac Zaks.
TS171 .P725 2013
Contains information that is essential to successful product design, including information on measurement conversions, trademark and copyright standards, patents and product-related intellectual property rights/standards, setting up files for prototyping and production runs, and manufacturing and packaging options to optimize the design. [10/16]
♦  Making it : manufacturing techniques for product design / [Chris Lefteri]. 2nd ed.
TS183 .L44 2012
Describes over 90 production techniques, established and cutting-edge, using descriptive text, specially commissioned diagrams, product shots, and photographs of the manufacturing process. Also information about costs and production volumes. [10/16]
♦  Manufacturing best practices : optimizing productivity and product quality / Bobby Hull.
TS183 .H85 2011 
Takes currently available manufacturing tools, such as six Sigma, Lean, ISO and Statistical Process Control (SPC), combined with real world experience, and shows how they can be used to create a culture or philosophy within an organization. The book shows that it is not the tools that make best practices, but rather the mindset that can be developed through the use of the tools, and provides best practices for manufacturers to pick those that are most applicable to their needs.   [10/16]
