Written to provide a step-by-step approach through the design process, this book focuses on the practices and procedures that are vital to moving a product design into production successfully and avoiding technical risk right from the start. This important applications-oriented reference will help engineers and programme managers to reduce the design flaws that can jepoardize a project - and thereby achieve the highest possible quality. Included are numerous Department of Defense (DoD) templates that should serve as valuable procedural guides in applying the methods discussed. "Design to Reduce Technical Risk" features information on design policy, process, and analysis. There is also coverage of developments in software applications, as well as detailed discussion of design for testings, configuration control, and design release.
