Concurrent Engineering Sometimes called simultaneous engineering, the key ingredient is teamwork. People from many departments collaborate over the life of a product from idea to obsolescence to ensure that it reflects the customers needs and
desires. Shina, 1991, p.23 Design for Engineers Design is the process of devising a system, component or process to meet a desired need Recent work on engineering design indicates that it is more of a social process than we once thought

You can switch to the procedure section, finish that, and then return to the abstract with a better idea of how to write it Presentations
Practice your presentations Dont forget to edit your writing Small grammatical and spelling errors are easily noticeable on presentation slides Teamwork QUESTIONS?
