About the Author and Materials

Dr. Hugh Jack, P.Eng. is a Professor and Chair of Product Design and Manufacturing Engineering at Grand Valley State University in Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA. He holds degrees in electrical and mechanical engineering with a strong interest in manufacturing systems.

The materials on this web site have been created to support a variety of courses in engineering programs spanning three universities since 1991. The focus of all of the materials is to lay a solid fundamental, to design, to implementation linkage.

although these materials will be of interest to others, they will be most useful to students and professional engineers and technologists.
