2 Engineering by design

In this section we focus on the engineering design and manufacture of products and particularly how these two activities in a company are dealt with side by side. We will start with a relatively simple product. This example is a consumer product that has been in the process of development for around 30 years. This is the Brompton folding bicycle, which has become one of the leading products in a growing market for portable bikes with increasing use by commuters on trains and buses.
