step by step

Identify the problem !

  • Engineers are problem solvers.
  • Understand the scope and nature of the problem.
  • Identify the correct issues and background of the problem.

Define working criteria and goals !

  • Establish prelimanry goals
  • Development working criteria to compare possible solutions
  • specifications and constraints

Research and gather data

  • Stay consistant with your working criteria while researching.
  • Use resources to conduct your research such as: internet, the library, newspaper etc...


There are always many good possibilities for solving design problems. If you focus on just one before looking at the alternatives, it is almost certain that you are overlooking a better solution. JUST KEEP THINKING !!

Develop the Solution

Developing can go on and on and on, just tweaking your proto-type

often even after a product ships to customers.

Building a Proto-type

Whats a proto-type ? typical or preliminary model of something.

Test and Redesign

The design process involves ALOT of redesigns of your final solution. You will likely test your solution, find new problems, make changes, and test new solutions before settling on a final design.

Communicate Results

You have to communicate in order to come up with your final soultion, ESPECIALLY if your working with a team.
