Dym and Brown present a useful resource to bring any design engineer interested in AI, or AI computer scientist interested in design, up to speed on the fundamentals of the field. This new edition also hints at emerging ideas from his active area of research. A very nice book, Engineering Design, demonstrates how AI can impact the research and practice of engineering design. - Jonathan Cagan, George Tallman and Florence Barrett Ladd Professor of Engineering, Carnegie Mellon University The original edition provided the basis for a profound understanding of engineering design using concepts from artificial intelligence. In the second edition, Clive Dym and David Brown have, in a masterful manner, made a good book better. This edition brings together newly developed concepts in artificial intelligence and cognitive science to enhance our understanding of design. If you want to understand engineering design there is no better place to start than this book. - John S. Gero, Research Professor, Krasnow Institute for Advanced Study, formerly Director, Key Centre of Design Computing and Cognition, University of Sydney PRAISE FOR THE FIRST EDITION: [Dym] has done an excellent job of describing the design process, both the psychological processes of the designer and the interaction between the human designer and the design tools that are now available and becoming available to assist (or collaborate) in the task. The book is a valuable contribution to the design literature and should be of great use as a solid introduction to the field. - Herbert A. Simon, Nobel Laureate, Professor, Carnegie Mellon University
