About this book
Advances in Design examines recent advances and innovations in product design paradigms, methods, tools and applications. It presents fifty-two selected papers which were presented at the 14th CIRP International Design Seminar held in May 2004 as well as the invited keynote papers. Dr. Waguih ElMaraghy was the conference Chair and Dr. Hoda ElMaraghy was on the program committee.
The International Institution for Production Research (CIRP), founded in 1951, is the top production engineering research college worldwide. The CIRP is subdivided into Scientific and Technical Committees (STC’s) which are responsible for coordinating cutting-edge research as well as holding highly regarded annual international seminars to disseminate the results. The CIRP "Design" STC meeting is the forum in which the latest developments in the design field are presented and discussed.
The Springer Series in Advanced Manufacturing publishes the best teaching and reference material to support students, educators and practitioners in manufacturing technology and management.

Engineering design is a broad domain that encompasses a wide range of activities whose final aim is to determine all attributes of a product before it is manufactured, whether the product be a consumer good or a machine tool that is used to manufacture products.
In summary, Advances in Design covers the results of years of research, both fundamental and applied, in the area of advanced design and is a balanced and informative body of knowledge. The variety of topics covered by the book helps ensure that it will have areas of interest for people working in the area of design, be they from an academic or industrial background.
