Abstract

This article discusses the various roles and responsibilities of materials engineers in a product realization organization and suggests different ways in which materials engineers may benefit their organization. It also provides a summary of the concepts discussed in the articles under the Section “The Role of the Materials Engineer in Design” in ASM Handbook, Volume 20: Materials Selection and Design.

Abstract

This article presents an overview of an engineering design process. Though the process is extremely complex, distinct stages of design activities are identified and described. The article illustrates guided iteration methodology that helps in problem solving in design. It describes the engineering conceptual design and configuration design of special-purpose parts. It discusses the parametric design methods of the parts and best practices that are used by successful firms to achieve the goals of quality, cost, time-to-market, and marketing flexibility.
