With AutoCAD 2011, Autodesk enhanced the user interface and improved many drawing functions including annotative dimensions and text. Neither simplistic nor exhaustive, this revised edition of Digital Drawing for Designers teaches the latest version of AutoCAD by relating to what architects and interior designers understand best: the visual world. Beginning with the building blocks of drawing (lines, circles, and arcs), the book progresses through architectural graphic standards allowing students to create drawings and effectively communicate their design ideas. Advanced features - such as annotative dimensions, annotative blocks, express tools, and linking drawings (XREFs) - are also covered. Instructions are illustrated using language and concepts from manual drafting, creating a smooth transition to the digital environment for all designers. New learners will appreciate the step-by-step lessons and visual illustrations. Experienced design professionals can easily access material to refresh their knowledge. Clear, concise, and above all visual, this is the AutoCAD guide written for interior designers and architects. Features: - Updated for AutoCAD 2011: compatible with AutoCAD versions 14 through 2011 - Illustrations depicting tools, functions, the AutoCAD ribbon interface, and keyboard commands - Practice exercises to reinforce each chapter's topics - Clear explanation of drawing and printing with line weight - Quick reference aids: command reference guide, index, and large-type page headers - Companion website features downloads for each chapter, including exercises, plot styles, title blocks, drawing templates, and professional AutoCAD drawings Instructor's Resources: - Instructor's Guide includes course syllabi and chapter outlines, tips for teachers, and problems and assignments to suit the skill levels of both interior design students and new interior designers
Digital media are revolutionising design, both as a tool in design practice and as a way of thinking about design products, processes and systems.
Written specifically for executives and MBA students, the third edition of this successful textbook provides a step-by-step guide to designing an organization, from diagnosis, to design and implementation. It provides comprehensive coverage of the key aspects of organizational design, including goals, strategy, process, people, coordination, control, and incentives. Following a new diamond model, fully tested in practice, the book guides readers through an integrated methodology for organizational assessment and planning. It includes a new chapter on project managing organizational change on a practical level, new case studies, extended discussions of new organizational forms, architecture design and knowledge systems, and new practical steps for implementation and change. An accompanying website gives free access to a selection of excel models, and features additional case studies, worksheets and templates, and a downloadable questionnaire for analyzing and diagnosing current organizations.

Recent rapid globalisation of manufacturing industries leads to a drive and thirst for rapid advancements in technological development and expertise in the fields of advanced design and manufacturing, especially at their interfaces. This development results in many economical benefits to and improvement of quality of life for many people all over the world. Technically speaking, this rapid development also create many opportunities and challenges for both industrialists and academics, as the design requirements and constraints have completely changed in this global design and manufacture environment. Consequently the way to design, manufacture and realise products have changed as well. The days of designing for a local market and using local suppliers in manufacturing have gone, if enterprises aim to maintain their competitiveness and global expansion leading to further success. In this global context and scenario, both industry and the academia have an urgent need to equip themselves with the latest knowledge, technology and methods developed for engineering design and manufacture. To address this shift in engineering design and manufacture, supported by the European Commission under the Asia Link Programme with a project title FASTAHEAD (A Framework Approach to Strengthening Asian Higher Education in Advanced Design and Manufacture), three key project partners, namely the University of Strathclyde of the United Kingdom, Northwestern Polytechncial University of China, and the Troyes University of Technology of France organised a third international conference.
