DESIGN COMPUTING CRAFT

design based on logical thinking

a basic and practical method to construct form

This is a textbook about design technique by engineering approach, that is getting the most important part for product development for next generation!
This book explains the foundations and the practice method for creating and developing two-dimensional and three-dimensional modeling from an engineering point of view.
The author, Professor Yamaoka is a specialist in ergonomics and an expert about a product development process of major manufacturers.
Needless to say, not only about modeling based on ergonomics, but structuring a design concept,characteristic and processing technique of material, user's sensibility research, and how to evaluate products, this book encompasses design techniques through essential logical thinking in product development.
A special appendix of Yamaoka method [70 points in design] check-list is also included at the end of the book.
