1

Engineering goals

__/20

Problem Statement: clear problem definition (identify constraints & alternatives), definition based on customer requirements (demands & wishes) [c]

F E-- E- E E+ E++

Prototype, test and/or prediction of performance: manufacturability; proof of concept; prototype can be a database which is established or revised. [c,k]

F E-- E- E E+ E++

Documentation of problem solution: feasibility analyses (if no prototype); validation and verification (meets customer demands and industry standards) [c]

F E-- E- E E+ E++

Safety, Health & Risk Analysis: safety & risk analysis; demonstration of appropriate mathematical analyses; environmental impact [4]

   E-- E- E E+ E++

Economic/market consideration: Can it be made? Can people afford it? What is the number of potential users? Mathematical analyses of what type of device you’re aiming toward; what’s the market? [4]

  E-- E- E E+ E++

2

Creative ability

__/20

Approach: logical analysis, consideration of alternatives; example of generation of ideas, ideation and innovation [e]

F E-- E- E E+ E++

Originality: new, non-obvious, a contribution to the body of engineering knowledge;

  E-- E- E E+ E++

3

Thoroughness

__/20

Documentation of effort: e.g., project notebook; Innovation Work Bench; Design history file, … [e,4]

F E-- E- E E+ E++

Literature review & Patent search, References: primary sources; patents…[j,k,h,i]

F E-- E- E E+ E++

Application of Standards (if applicable, depends on type of project): relevant standards cited, e.g., FDA regulations, ISO9000, etc.[e,4]

   E-- E- E E+ E++

4

Overall Competence in Design

__/25

Proper application of modern engineering techniques, skills and tools to problem [e,k,c,b]

F E-- E- E E+ E++

Demonstrated ability to design system, component or process [c,k]

F E-- E- E E+ E++

Problem scope: Design difficulty (e.g., open- v. closed-ended problem), magnitude of design challenge; is the problem trivial or not? [i,a]

  E-- E- E E+ E++

5

Clarity of presentation

__/10

Engineering layout: easy to read, mix of text and pictures[g]

F E-- E- E E+ E++

Well-written: is it a stand alone summary? Convincing evidence of solution’s quality; links findings to project statement?[g]

F E-- E- E E+ E++

Overall impact: overall communication; convincing that this is a good  solution[g]

F E-- E- E E+ E++

Evidence of teamwork: can the evaluator have a substantive exchange about the project with each team member?[d]

   E-- E- E E+ E++

6

Ethical/Societal/Political considerations:

__/5

Ethical/Societal/Political considerations: Is anyone being excluded? Ethical treatment of subjects (human and animal)?[4,f]

F E-- E- E E+ E++

 

 

F indicates failure, E--  indicates performance way below expectations, E-  below expectations, E  at expectations, E+  above expectations, and E++  indicates  superior performance.
