Design Cycle

Engineering is formulating a problem that can be solved through design. Science is formulating a question that can be solved through investigation

1)Identify the Design Challenge. Clearly state the problem and a potential solution.

2) Consider Existing Approaches. ...

3) Identify Needs and Constraints. ...

4) Brainstorm. ...

5) Collaborate on Ideas. ...

6) Create a Prototype. ...

7) Refine, Modify, and Perfect.

The engineering design process is a methodical series of steps that engineers use in creating functional products and processes. The process is highly iterative - parts of the process often need to be repeated many times before another can be entered - though the part(s) that get iterated and the number of such cycles in any given project may vary.

It is important to understand that the design process is iterative, meaning that we repeat the steps as many times as needed, making improvements along the way. The first iteration of a design isn't usually the best solution. As we learn from failure and uncover new design possibilities we arrive at better solutions.
