Introduction to the Design Process 2 Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) Definition of Design Engineering design is the process of devising a system, component, or process to meet desired needs. It is a decision-making process (often iterative), in which the basic sciences and mathematics and engineering sciences are applied to convert resources optimally to meet a stated objective. Among the fundamental elements of the design process are the establishment of objectives and criteria, synthesis, analysis, construction, testing, and evaluation. Welcome to the world of OPEN ENDED PROBLEMS.

Introduction to the Design Process 4 Steps of the Design Process 1. Recognize the Need The first step is to establish the ultimate purpose of the project via a general statement of the client’s dissatisfaction with a current situation. example – “There’s too much damage to bumpers in low- speed collisions.” This is a general statement that does not comment on the design approach to the problem. It does not say that the bumper should be stronger or more flexible. recognition of the need and phrasing of the need are often a very creative act because the need may only be a sensing that something is not right example: the need to do something about a food packaging machine may be indicated by the noise level, the variation in package weight, or by slight but perceptible variations in the quality of the packaging Recognize the Need

    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.
