Home Engineering Small Unmanned Fixed-Wing Aircraft Design. A Practical Approach
In the aircraft industry, the collective phrase for the information pertaining to the aircraft is “product definition.” As the product definition evolves, there are a number of challenges for the design team such as the following:
Even a typical student group design project can thus become complex and need a disciplined approach.
The aerospace industry has, over the decades, developed a methodology called “systems engineering” to help manage complexity. A detailed explanation of systems engineering is beyond the scope of this book, but there are some core principles that should be adopted to help ensure that a design project progresses efficiently. The important principles include the following:
