Software to Automate Engineering for Structural Products

Given an idealistic view that engineering takes place at the frontiers of science and technology, no engineering should be required for structural products as they are largely established technologies. However there may be need to make prototypes and physically test them to get some empirical data, and calibrate mathematical models. Additionally there are issues of […]

Manufactured Structural Product – Some Useful Terminology

Terminology Structural Product:  A system, a component of a system or an application. System: a collection of components which can be combined to create an assembly suitable for a specific application. Application: an assembly produced from the structural system for a specific purpose. Installation: a given application installed on a specific site to meet an […]

Manufactured Structural Product – A Start to Defining

A manufactured structural product (MSP), is a product that is dependent on structural engineering/design to demonstrate its fitness-for-function, and is otherwise fabricated in a factory and then transported to site and assembled. Primarily the intent is that it is designed once and fabricated and installed many times. The reality is, that the structural product is […]


The following is the summary I was given for the subject Product Design at the University of South Australia. Industrial Design: Industrial Design is the process of adjustment of industrially producible commodities to the physiological and psychological needs of the user of those. PROCESS OF INDUSTRIAL DESIGN INFORMATION (To Produce the BRIEF/TECHNICAL PACKAGE) Users Needs Analysis/ […]
