QuestionAnswer
Brainstorming a group problem-solving technique that involves the spontaneous contribution of ideas from all members of the group; also : the mulling over of ideas by one or more individuals in an attempt to devise or find a solution to a problem.
Computer simulation Simulation engineering is a broad term used to describe computer simulation technologies and programs used to model engineering projects and evaluate the risks and benefits in a virtual environment.
Computer-aided Design (CAD) CAD, or computer-aided design and drafting (CADD), is the use of computer technology for design and design documentation. CAD software replaces manual drafting with an automated process.
Computer numerical control (CNC) CNC means Computer Numerical Control. This means a computer converts the design produced by Computer Aided Design software (CAD), into numbers. The numbers can be considered to be the coordinates of a graph and they control the movement of the cutter.
Design Brief A design brief is a written document for a design project developed by a person or team (the 'designer' or 'design team') in consultation with the 'client'.
Detail Drawing a drawing, at relatively large scale, of a part of a building, machine, etc., with dimensions or other information for use in construction.
Engineering Notebook An engineering notebook is basically any sort of bound book that contains notes, data, calculations, and other information based on first-hand observations of various tests or experiments.
Ideation Ideation is the creative process of generating, developing, and communicating new ideas, where an idea is understood as a basic element of thought that can be either visual, concrete, or abstract.
Mechanical Drawing An engineering drawing, a type of technical drawing, is used to fully and clearly define requirements for engineered items. Engineering drawing (the activity) produces engineering drawings (the documents).
Multiview Drawing In technical drawing and computer graphics, a multiview projection is a technique of illustration by which a standardized series of orthographic two-dimensional pictures is constructed to represent the form of a three-dimensional object.
Orthographic Drawing An orthographic drawing is a method that allows someone to represent a three-dimensional object on a two-dimensional piece of paper. By drawing the object for a various angles, the artist is able to show how the object looks in the real world.
Pictorial Drawing An Isometric drawing is a pictorial representation of an object in which all three dimensions are drawn at full scale.
Problem Statement A problem statement is a clear concise description of the issue(s) that need(s) to be addressed by a problem solving team. It is used to center and focus the team at the beginning, keep the team on track during the effort.
Prototype A prototype engineer is typically responsible for overseeing the process of designing and developing a prototype product.
Rapid Prototyping Rapid prototyping is a group of techniques used to quickly fabricate a scale model of a physical part or assembly using three-dimensional computer aided design (CAD) data.
Rendering In 3-D graphic design, rendering is the process of add shading, color and lamination to a 2-D or 3-D wireframe in order to create life-like images on a screen.
Reverse Engineering the reproduction of another manufacturer's product following detailed examination of its construction or composition.
Sketch A graphical language used by engineers and other technical personnel associated with the engineering profession.
Specifications Sheets A cut sheet is a general term for a few pages of specifications, instructions, dimensions, etc. that apply to a certain technical product or product line, generally shipped with the product.
3-D Model Model engineering is the pursuit of constructing proportionally-scaled working representations of full-sized machines in miniature.
