July 25, 2019 —Thanks to today’s advanced technology, many products have been created and services have been rendered with the sole purpose of attending to people’s needs. But just how much do we know about what a product goes through while it is being created?
Before a product hits the market, it goes through a series of meticulous processes that extend from feasibility studies, to conceptualization and then to manufacturing. One of those processes is engineering design, a problem-solving method that works in any situation. Engineers use engineering design to identify, analyze and solve problems that a product may have in order to ensure that it performs as intended. The main goals of engineering design are for the project to be cost-effective, efficient, timely and adaptable to change.
In product development, the highly successful engineering design project phase is as significantly important as a product itself, so much so that a product would fail without it. In his book, Walt Maclay explains in detail the importance of engineering design, the things that need to be done and the mistakes to avoid in order to create highly successful engineering design projects.
Walt Maclay is the founder of Voler Systems and has been its President for nearly four decades. With his experience and expertise in the field of engineering design, he is living proof that the process works and that it yields highly successful projects.
“Walt Maclay is an excellent guy and a great example of a leader. His leadership has helped many to achieve success. His basic engineering design principle is for a project to be completed on time and on budget. And this principle is the foundation of his book, ‘Highly Successful Engineering Design Projects’,” said Mitchell Levy (http://aha.pub/MitchellLevy), Global Credibility Expert and The AHA Guy at AHAthat® (https://AHAthat.com).
Here are five AHAmessages™ you can share from this book:
• Write detailed #EngineeringDesign requirements. #SuccessfulProjects have detailed requirements that include the customer’s POV (inputs) and the engineering department’s POV (outputs). http://aha.pub/WaltMaclay
• During #EngineeringDesign meetings, focus on what’s important. Don’t waste everyone’s time on something that can be better handled by an individual or a small group. #SuccessfulProjects http://aha.pub/WaltMaclay
• Don’t micromanage. Highly successful #EngineeringDesign projects give people freedom to do things their way, but not so much freedom that there can be large failures. #SuccessfulProjects http://aha.pub/WaltMaclay
• Reward your #EngineeringDesign people for taking necessary risks regardless of the outcome and for learning from mistakes. #SuccessfulProjects http://aha.pub/WaltMaclay
• Highly successful #EngineeringDesign projects encourage criticism by suggesting possible things that could have been done better. This also encourages praise where it is due. #SuccessfulProjects http://aha.pub/WaltMaclay
