Design and Engineering Pack A of 4 by Alex Woolf, Ian Graham, Chris Oxlade, Richard Spilsbury

Did you know that all products have life cycles? That's what we call the stages from their design, manufacture, and sale to their use, cleaning and repair, and eventually their disposal. This series explains what happens to a fascinating range of products during these stages, such as prototyping, the sourcing of materials and components, the manufacturing process, the decisions made by designers and engineers, and recycling.
