Excerpt from Machine Design: A Manual of Practical Instruction in Designing Machinery

Definition. Machine Design is the art of mechanical thought, development, and specification.

It is an art, in that its routine processes may be analyzed and systematically applied Proficiency in the art positively cannot be attained by any short cut method. There is nothing of a spectacular nature in the methods of Machine Design. Large results cannot be, accomplished at a single bound, and success is possible only by a patient, step-by-step advance in accordance with well-established principles.

Mechanical thought means the thinking of things strictly from their mechanical side; a study of their mechanical theory, structure, production, and use; a consideration of their mechanical fitness as parts of a machine.
