* The estimated amount of time this product will be on the market is based on a number of factors, including faculty input to instructional design and the prior revision cycle and updates to academic research-which typically results in a revision cycle ranging from every two to four years for this product. Pricing subject to change at any time.
This course is the first of the two design courses in the curriculum and is required for all ME students. It provides the students with a fundamental understanding of the product development process and hands-on-experience in theoretical modeling and experimental analysis of product and subsystem performance and manufacturing. The fundamentals of the product design process, the tools, methods, software and strategies involved, are taught through lectures by faculty and industry experts. At the same time the students are dissecting, benchmarking and performance testing a product designed and manufactured by Stanley Black & Decker. Students will continue to study the engineering design and manufacture of the products by focusing (in teams) on a single subsystem to understand the design decisions made to achieve the subsystem and overall product performance and suggest possible changes in the subsystem to improve corporative objectives for the tool. Student teams will present the results of this focused study to peers, faculty, and engineering professionals and prepare and submit a formal technical report.
Maria C. Yang Massachusetts Institute of Technology is a Professor of Mechanical Engineering and MacVicar Faculty Fellow at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. She earned an S.B. from MIT and M.S. and Ph.D. from Stanford University, all in Mechanical Engineering. Her research investigates how early stage design process drives innovation. Her work spans product design to complex engineering systems, with applications in aerospace, energy, and water. She is an ASME Fellow and a recipient of the NSF CAREER award. Yang has previously served as director of design at a Silicon Valley start-up and co-founded a consumer product start-up.
As well as covering the 2016 versions of the EU EMC and Radio Directives, this new edition has been thoroughly updated to be in line with the latest best practices in EMC compliance and product design. Coverage now includes extra detail on the main automotive, military, and aerospace standards requirements, as well as a discussion of the issues raised by COTS equipment in military applications.
Our aim is to help people learn how to more quickly and cost-effectively design and manufacture electronic equipment (products, systems, installations, etc.) to meet functional (i.e. SI/PI) specifications and conform to EMC standards, directives and other requirements.

The aim is to offer a better understanding of the synergy between quality and regulatory activities in product development, risk management, problem-solving, kaizens and quality analytics. Fully grasping this relationship will help to foster a culture of continuous improvement and to transform quality and regulatory programs into important profit drivers.

Instructional Design and Technology (IDT) applies what is empirically understood about how humans learn and improve upon performance to the design, development, implementation, and evaluation of learning and performance support products, processes, and environments. IDT professionals understand and leverage technologies as both product (such as a Web-based course for distant learners or print-based job-aids for the workplace) and process (such as an iterative and formative approach to learner assessment). Instructional technologists practice their unique, multidisciplinary profession in a variety of settings including industry, preK-12 schools, higher education, and government. 2b1af7f3a8
