# CTE Resource Center - Verso - Production Systems Task 1352643104

CTE Resource Center - Verso

Virginia’s CTE Resource Center

Describe the engineering design process.

Definition

Description should include the concept that the engineering design process is a systematic, creative process for solving problems concerning real objects, products, systems, and environments. The steps of the process include

  • identifying a design problem or opportunity
  • identifying criteria and constraints
  • creating possible designs
  • choosing a design
  • refining the design
  • evaluating the design, including performing a cost-benefit analysis
  • developing a prototype or system
  • evaluating final solutions
  • developing a production system with quality controls.

Process/Skill Questions

  • How can design problems be identified?
  • What are the types of problems that concern product developers?
  • Why is it important to identify criteria and constraints?
  • What techniques are used to refine a design?
  • How can a design be evaluated?
  • What is quality control?
  • Why should final solutions be re-evaluated? How is this done?
  • What are the basic requirements of design?
  • What are ergonomics?
  • What are functional requirements?
