Engineering design, a systematic process for

solving engineering problems, is based on

scientific knowledge and models of the

material world. Each proposed solution results

from a process of balancing competing criteria

of desired functions, technological feasibility,

cost, safety, esthetics, and compliance with

legal requirements. There is usually no single

best solution but rather a range of solutions.

Which one is the optimal choice depends on

the criteria used for making evaluations.
