Six Stages of Product Development
Understand the six stages of development through which designs evolve.
Understand how the requirements, tests, and design evolve through each stage of development.
Network of Design Activities
Understand how a design network is used to cause the product information to evolve, and how the map can be customized for specific development projects.
Design Desirability and Transferability
Understand how artifact checks, performance testing, and validation testing are used to ensure the desirability and transferability of the design at each stage of development.
Skills in Product Development, Reporting and Presentation
Develop skills in project planning, idea generation, prototyping, developing engineering models, and conveying information both in writing and orally.
Understand how to work within organizational policies to accomplish important goals.
Demonstrate the ability to use effective team processes, communication, and conflict resolution skills to enhance team synergy, provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
Analysis and Communication
As a part of a team, use a real-world problem solving process to develop, solve, and explore appropriate engineering models for your project, and effectively communicate the results of this analysis.
Apply the understanding and skills from other outcomes while working with a project sponsor in a team setting to produce desirable and transferable product information through designing, building, and testing, while considering public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors.
