Mechanical design and Product development process
What you'll learn
- What is the product development process?
- Various facets of Idea generation for a new product
- Identifying an opportunity for product development
- The nuances of Concept evaluation and selection
- What is product architecture , system design and detailed design
- A Holistic overview of the process with many examples

Product development is the process through which a mechanical product is realized from just an idea into a fully detailed entity ready for production.
This course is an attempt to cover that process at an introductory level covering all the key concepts, ideas and details from a perspective of a Mechanical design engineer.
The course is structured in a way as to build on the product development process step by step . From the way an Idea is generated, incubated, to how a concept is generated, evaluated, how specifications are created and set towards the system design of a product , followed by a overview of activities in Detailed design and prototyping.
