Transcript of "What is the engineering design process"

  1. 1. What Is the Engineering Design Process? <ul><li>Creative process </li></ul><ul><li>Problem solving – the big picture </li></ul><ul><li>No single &quot;correct&quot; solution </li></ul><ul><li>Technical aspects only small part </li></ul>
  2. 3. <ul><li>IDENTIFY THE CHALLENGE </li></ul><ul><li>identify what has to be accomplished </li></ul><ul><li>(the problem) </li></ul><ul><li>Example: create a video broadcast- public service annoncement regarding their personal “Ecological Footprint” and that of their class and school </li></ul>
  3. 4. <ul><li>2. RESEARCH THE PROBLEM </li></ul><ul><li>Gather and record what is known </li></ul><ul><li>Example: go to the websites provided to </li></ul><ul><li>determine your “Ecological Footprint” </li></ul><ul><li>http://www.footprintnetwork.org/en/index.php/GFN/page/calculators/ </li></ul><ul><li>http://www.footprintnetwork.org/en/index.php/GFN/page/personal_footprint </li></ul><ul><li>http://islandwood.org/kids/impact/footprint/footprint.php </li></ul><ul><li>http://www.epa.vic.gov.au/ecologicalfootprint/calculators/default.asp </li></ul><ul><li>http://www.carbonfootprint.com/calculator.aspx </li></ul><ul><li>Establish a plan of procedures </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Stages of Production </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Remember to include: story boards, scripts, model sheets, screen snaps </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>
  4. 5. 3. DEVELOP POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS <ul><li>List at least 5 ideas to solve your communication challenge </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Example: mindmap, PMI </li></ul></ul>
  5. 6. 4. SELECT THE BEST SOLUTION <ul><li>Identify the resources required for each suggested solution, and compare each solution to the design criteria, refining a modifying it as required </li></ul>
  6. 7. 5. CONSTRUCT A PROTOTYPE <ul><li>Build a prototype (working model) of your best solution/design </li></ul><ul><li>Don’t forget the criteria/constraints /conditions that your broadcast must satisfy (existing industry standards and requirements for the production and broadcast of commercial messages PSA) </li></ul><ul><li>Example: screen snaps with brief </li></ul><ul><li>descriptions </li></ul>
  7. 8. 6. TEST AND EVALUATE SOLUTION <ul><li>What is required to produce it. </li></ul><ul><li>Example: what software is required? </li></ul><ul><li>royalty free media? condensor </li></ul><ul><li>microphones? Green screen? </li></ul>
  8. 9. 7. REDESIGN <ul><li>Did your design solve the challenge? </li></ul><ul><li>If not brainstorm a new solution – design, build and re-evaluate AGAIN! </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Example: Survey 10 people and repeat the </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>design process if changes required </li></ul></ul>
  9. 10. COMMUNICATE <ul><li>At each step you must communicate with your team members and others to get feedback on your design solution. </li></ul><ul><li>You need to communicate verbally as well as describing your design through writing and drawings </li></ul><ul><li>Example: using one or more of the following : final drawings, TECHNICAL REPORTS, electronic presentations, flow charts, storyboards, prototypes </li></ul>
