In creating the value-added product in not distant future, it is necessary and inevitable to establish a holistic and though-evoking approach to the engineering problem, which should be at least associated with the inter-disciplinary knowledge and thought processes across the whole engineering spheres. It is furthermore desirable to integrate it with trans-disciplinary aspects ranging from manufacturing culture, through liberal-arts engineering and industrial sociology.

The thought-evoking approach can be exemplified and typified by representative engineering problems: unveiling essential features in 'Tangential Force Ratio and Interface Pressure', prototype development for 'Bio-mimetic Needle' and application of 'Water-jet Machining to Artificial Hip Joint', product innovation in 'Heat Sink for Computer', application of 'Graph Theory' to similarity evaluation of production systems, leverage among reciprocity attributes in 'Industrial and Engineering Designs for Machine Enclosure' and academic interpretation of skills of mature technician in 'Scraping'.

The book is intended to cultivate the multi-talented engineer of the next generation by providing them with the future perspective and ideas for challenging research and development subjects.
