LSN 5 4 Project Presentation #1 Students will work in groups of 3. 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. Groups will also be encouraged to come up with “creative” ways to hold the class’s interest and keep them involved in the material. The group will have 15-20 minutes to demonstrate the tool or technique and explain its value to the problem solving process. Finally, each group will also be required to create 3 supporting sample test questions related to the material that they present. INEG 4433– Engineering Design and Systems Management

Individualism vs. Teamwork by Tim Bryce With all the talk about teamwork in corperate  America today, how much of it is real? Much more goes into making a team than simply  talking about it!

Corporate Culture Corporate leaders are still creating a competitive  environment  hope that the strong employees will stand out, but  teamwork really is about cooperation Teamwork needs to be taught Old habits need to be broken, and new ones need to be  taught In USA individuality is emphasized from an early  age because we believe in so many individual  freedoms Does not encourage teamwork Cooperation is emphasized at an earlier age in other  countries

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
