These are benchmarks against which we can measure a design’s performance. With specifications in hand, we generate different concepts of how the design might work or look, that is, we create design alternatives. Then we choose one concept (say, a stepladder) and build and analyze a model of that concept, test and evaluate that design, refine and optimize some of its details, and then document the justification for the stepladder’s final design and its fabrication specifications. 2 we will present all of the tasks of the engineering design process in greater detail.

Least commitment is one general strategy for thinking about design: Don’t make decisions before you have to. This is a good habit of thought that guards against making decisions before there is a reason to make them. Premature commitments can be dangerous because we might become attached to a bad concept or we might limit ourselves to a suboptimal range of design choices. Least commitment is of particular importance in conceptual design because the consequences of any early design decision are likely to be propagated far down the line.

On the contrary, there are many organizations that foster imaginative engineering design as an integral part of their management style. At 3M, for example, each of the more than 90 product divisions is expected to generate 30% of its annual revenues from products that didn’t even exist five years earlier. So we will also introduce a few management tools that are useful in design projects. We began this chapter by defining terms and developing a common vocabulary for design; we will do the same for management, project management, and the management of design projects in Chapter 16.
