Mechanical Life Cycle Handbook - Good Environmental Design and Manufacturing
Edited by Mahendra S. Hundal
This book, volume 138 in the Mechanical Engineering series,
explains how Design for the Environment (DFE) and Life Cycle
Engineering (LCE) processes may be integrated into business and
manufacturing practices. It will be of interest to mechanical, cost,
electrical, electronics, biomedical, chemical, aeronautical, industrial,
materials, automotive, design, project, and manufacturing engineers; product
designers, planners, and managers as well as advanced environmental students.
