Reliability in a finished product can only be ensured when the designer has taken care to achieve the optimum solution to the sum of the needs of a particular set of circumstances. The engineering drawing is the message which communicates a reliable design to the production department so that it may be converted into a reliable product. There are many examples of good and bad approaches to the design problem. Some historical examples offer insights into design practices, and a very fine example of cooperation and coordination of design efforts is given in the casting used in the British Leyland Range Rover gearbox. /GMRL/
