Factors to be considered during machine design

In machine design, there are so many factors to consider when designing the machine because the small amount of machine error leads to a high amount of loss so it is better to take care of some factor when designing the machine.
The list of these factors is given below :
  • Cost
  • High output and efficiency
  • Strength
  • Stiffness or rigidity
  • Wear resistance
  • Lubrication
  • Operational safety
  • Ease of assembly
  • Ease and simplicity of disassembly
  • Ease and simplicity of servicing and control
  • Lightweight and minimum dimensions
  • Reliability
  • Durability
  • Economy of performance
  • Accessibility
  • Processability
  • Compliance with state standards
  • The economy of repairs and maintenance
  • Use of standard parts
  • Use of easily available materials
  • The appearance of the machine
  • Number of machines to be built
