Unit 4 Design

Universal DesignThe idea that all new environments and products, to the greatest extent possible, should be usable by everyone regardless of their age, ability, or circumstance.
ScienceThe study of the history of the natural world and how the natural world works, based on observable physical evidence.
Scientific MethodProcesses of discovery and demonstration including; observation of phenomena, formulation of a hypothesis, experimentation and conclusion.
Engineering DesignA systematic application of mathematical, scientific and technical principles that produces tangible end products that meet our needs and desires.
Engineering Design ProcessIs a systematic, iterative, problem-solving strategy, with criteria and constraints, used to develop many possible solutions to a problem to satisfy human needs and wants.
CriteriaSpecifications and requirements that must be included in a product.
ConstraintA limitation in a product or device, requirements or specifications that could not be implemented due to cost or some other trade-off. Constraints may include physical, biological, economic, political, social, ethical, and aesthetic concerns but almost always involve time, budget, and safety issues.
Trade-offA decision process recognizing the need for careful compromises among competing factors. Requirements of a design (criteria and constraints) sometimes compete with each other.
