This combined bibliography contains both references consulted in the previous editions of this book and a sampling of books on issues such as design theory, design in different disciplines, product development, project management techniques, optimization theory, applications of artificial intelligence, engineering ethics and the practice of engineering, and more. This is not a complete list of works: The literatures on design and project management alone are both vast and rapidly expanding. Thus, keep in mind that this list represents only the tip of a very large iceberg of published work in design and in project management. Some of the works cited are just intellectually interesting, and some are books that students in particular will find useful for project work.
