Concurrent Materials and Process Selection in Conceptual Design

Stephen D. Kleban

The sequential manner in which materials and processes for a manufactured product are selected is inherently less than optimal. Designers’ tendency to choose processes and materials with which they are familiar exacerbate this problem. A method for concurrent selection of materials and a joining process based on product requirements using a knowledge-based, constraint satisfaction approach is presented.
