The Engineering Design Process

 

To solve engineering problems, engineers follow a series of steps called the “engineering design process”

A Plan of Work

 

 

 

 

 

 

ASK: What is the problem? How have others approached it? What are your constraints?

IMAGINE: What are some solutions? Brainstorm ideas. Choose the best one.

PLAN: Draw a diagram. Make lists of materials you will need.

CREATE: Follow your plan and create something. Test it out!

IMPROVE: What works? What doesn't? What could work better? Modify your designs to make it better. Test it out!

It’s important to note that the EDP is flexible. There are as many variations of the model as there are engineers.
