Each group will make a 15-20 minute PowerPoint presentation on a topic of their choosing. Topics should be approved by the instructor. Each group will research a topic that is related to the engineering problem solving process. Each group should identify, demonstrate and explain the use of some sort of analysis tool from the literature that supports some aspect of the problem solving process. This tool or technique can come from the literature or another text book as long as it has not been discussed in detail in class.
