About the book

Product design is an ambitious journey of developing functional components meeting the requirements of the customer by innovative thinking. Understanding the end-user demands, needs, behaviors, and habits is an important key to a successful product design. Moreover, this journey ends happily and efficiently only when the creative design ideas are combined with the opportunities given by new design tools, new materials, and new manufacturing routes. Without considering the aforementioned aspects, product design would not be complete and fully exploited to its real potential. The essential link between product design and manufacturing is critical and desired to produce creative designs in the right quantities and qualities with the right price, finally meeting the end-user specifications.

Thus, this book welcomes original research and review studies aiming at various aspects of product design with a manufacturing perspective to explore the design strategies, manufacturing limits, and post-manufacturing phases of material enhancement and inspection.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mrs. Dajana Jusic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
