A case study in value design

  • M. Sinclair


The design of a special type of valve gave rise to a problem which lead the mechanical engineers who designed the valve to call in the help of the author. The final solution to the problem may not be mathematically sophisticated (in fact, it may seem trivial to some readers), but the steps through which the design team struggled and the final approach which resulted in a practically feasible solution may be of interest to other practitioners.
