Innovative Conceptual Design Theory and Application of Parameter Analysis by Ehud Kroll, Sridhar S. Condoor, David G. Jansson

Conceptual design, along with need identification and analysis, make up the initial stage of the design process. Need analysis transforms the often vague statement of a design task into a set of design requirements. Conceptual design encompasses the generation of concepts and integration into system-level solutions, leading to a relatively detailed design. This 2001 book is devoted to the crucial initial stage of engineering design. In particular, it focuses on parameter analysis, a methodology that leads the user through the design process, helping to identify critical issues (parameters) of the design and propose configuration-specific solutions. To illustrate the principles discussed, the authors present numerous examples and a variety of real-world case studies. The emphasis throughout is on innovation. This useful text will appeal to advanced undergraduate and graduate students, as well as practising engineers, architects, and product development managers.


' ... offers a broader insight into the thought processes that can lead to new concepts - meaning a fundamentally different solution to an already existing problem, or perhaps a new design challenge - and provides a stimulus to direct the designer along a more fruitful path when it comes to innovation in design. It is a well-written and highly readable book, and is to be recommended for its refreshing approach to innovation in conceptual design.'

If you LOVE reading then you will love LOVEREADING! It's a 'novel' idea. Seriously though I could not recommend them enough.

Rebecca Whymark

A great place to go to find your next literary escape, and where you don't have to judge a book by its cover!

Suzanne Beney

Lovereading has given me the opportunity to delve into new and exciting worlds of authors who I would never have tried before.

Glynis Elliott

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

It's information about new books so, for a book lover like me, what's not to like!

Joan Hill

I read new, exciting writers and established authors before publication and there is a great website full of brilliant books and opinions.


For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

Ever purchased a book, read a few pages & thought I'm not going to enjoy this? Honest book reviews mean you'll never have that problem again
