Engineers, irrespective of their disciplines, need effective tools to comprehensively design, model, synthesize and analyze the design a product. This is often closely followed by the need to fabricate a working prototype. Engineers need useful methodologies and tools that can be used in preparation for manufacturing. These tools need to effectively analyze assembly & disassembly since a good assembly design makes a product les expensive to service, repair and maintain. A suite of well-integrated tools assists designers to create, simulate and test in a comprehensive manner. Modern software tools can be used at each stage to create conceptual designs, simulate part geometries, analyze key parameters, and generate motion paths for efficient manufacturing. This paper presents a set of comprehensive procedures and tools that can easily be incorporated into product design and manufacturing from early design through analysis. They consider assembly and disassembly factors up to and including the creation of a working prototype. Due to environmental regulations, designers must think about the product life cycle, recycling and reuse aspects from the very beginning. There is a continuing need for more efficient and rapid design processes which can best be driven by better tools and techniques.
