In engineering, the design process is the blueprint to success

The engineering design process is used to develop new products, processes, or systems. It is a series of steps that engineers follow to come up with a solution to a problem which includes

  • Opportunity identification
  • What are customer needs?
  • Specifying requirements
  • Brainstorm and Ideate
  • Generate solutions
  • Prototype and Test
  • Implement

It is a very important concept within the larger skillset of mechanical design engineering. Understanding and imbibing the process provides engineers with a structured problem solving approach and a holistic thinking mindset working from concept to implementation
