Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 The Engineering design Process By Cailey Williams Step 1: Define the Problem. The problem should be defined in 3-5 sentences. It should state the who, what, where, when, why and how of the problem in orderto completely get a description of the problem. Step 2: Brainstorming. Now you're thinking of ideas for your solution. Encourage different and new ideas, and never judge others ideas. Build of the ideas fromothers so that everyone is included, Step 3: Researching Ideas and Exploring Possibilites. It is now time to go online to find the best solution for yourproblem. Find different methods that help support the best solution. A similar problem may have been solved in the passed, so work off of that solution. Step 4: Specify Constraints and identify Criteria. Criteria is guidelines that your solution must meet in order to be considered a solution to the problem. Constraints are limitationson what your solution can and can't have. You need to identify these in order to come up with the best solution to your problem. Step 5: Consider Alternative Solutions. Never let preconceptions limit your final ideas. Always stay open minded and consider how all the ideas can contribute to solve the solution. double click to changethis text! Drag a cornerto scale proportionally. Step 6: Select an Approach. double click to change this header text! Choose the best solution that applies to all the criteria and constraints. Keep in mind that you can innovate as you continue creating your solution. Step 7: Develop a Written Design Proposal. This is a way to manage your plan to build your solution. You're going to need a list of materials, sketches, and detailsfor example. A Gantt chart is a good way to manage time andwhen everything is going to get done. Step 8: Make a Model or prototype. This is the part where you make a 3-dimensional model of your solution. A prototype is a model of your product that works so that it can be tested and evaluated. A mock-up is a model that doesn't work. Step 9: Test and Evaluate. double click to change this header text! Now is when you test to see if your solution worked. Take multiple trails and record all the data you've acquired so you can identify the problems. Step 10: Refining Your Design. Using the data you've collected, improve your design so your product no longer makes the mistakes it didduring the test. Step 11: Make a Final Product. Create your final model that solves the original problem,and no longer experiences the problems it had during the test. Step 12: Communicate your Results. This is the last step in the process. In your design journal, record how you solved the problem using the Design Process.You can also summarize your work and rank your teammembers.
