MULTIDESCIPLINARY design optimization (MDO) has developed in theory andpractice during the last three decades with the aim of optimizing complexproducts as well as cutting costs and product development time. Despite thisdevelopment, the implementation of such a method in industry is still a challenge andmany complex products suffer time and cost overruns. Employing higher fidelity models (HFMs) in conceptual design, one of the early and most important phases in the design process, can play an important role in increasing the knowledge base regarding the concept under evaluation. However, design space in the presence of HFMs could significantly be expanded. MDO has proven to be an important tool for searching the design space and finding optimal solutions. This leads to a reduction in the number of design iterations later in the design process, with wiser and more robust decisions made early in the design process to rely on. In complex products, different systems from a multitude of engineering disciplines have to work tightly together. This stresses the importance of evolving various domain experts in the design process to improve the design from diverse engineering perspectives. Involving more engineers in the design process early on raises the challenges of collaboration, known to be an important barrier to MDO implementation in industry. Another barrier is the unavailability and lack of MDO experts in industry; those who understand the MDO process and know the implementation tasks involved. In an endeavor to address the mentioned implementation challenges, a novel collaborative multidisciplinary design optimization (CMDO) framework is defined in order to be applied in the conceptual design phase. CMDO provides a platform where many engineers team up to increase the likelihood of more accurate decisions being taken early on. The structured way to define the engineering responsibilities and tasks involved in MDO helps to facilitate the implementation process. It will be further elaborated that educating active engineers with MDO knowledge is an expensive and time-consuming process for industries. Therefore, a guideline for CMDO implementation in conceptual design is proposed in this thesis that can be easily followed by design engineers with limited prior knowledge in MDO. The performance of the framework is evaluated in a number of case studies, including applications such as aircraft design and the design of a tidal water power plant, and by engineers in industry and student groups in academia.

More quality, more flexibility, and less costs seem to be the key to meeting the demands of the global marketplace. The secret to success in this arena lies in the expert execution of the critical tasks in the product definition stage. Prototyping is an essential part of this stage, yet can be very expensive. It must be planned well and use state-of-the-art rapid and virtual prototyping tools to accelerate the process. Emphasizing the important role of prototyping in product definition, Rapid Prototyping and Engineering Applications: A Toolbox for Prototype Development covers a wide spectrum of prototyping tools with over 400 figures that give you instant access to the concepts. The book discusses engineering procedures and the application of modern prototyping technologies, such as Rapid Prototyping (RP) and Virtual Prototyping (VP), that quickly deliver new products with lower costs and higher quality. Extensive examples and case studies make the author’s delineation of industrial practices easy to grasp. Practice exercises in each chapter develop problem-solving techniques and coverage of state-of-the-art RP technologies provides modern prototyping knowledge. And although the book highlights RP technologies extensively, it also explores other prototyping tools and methodologies, setting it apart as one of the few resources to cover both. It delineates the technologies required for well-planned prototyping that not only save money but decrease time to market.
