Communication in Engineering Design: Establishing Best Practices for the Era of e-Design

Project status: Complete

Thrust area: New Design Paradigms and Processes

Research team: Nicholas Polys

Effective transfer of information is central to successful design projects. Communication occurs among team members, between team members and project managers, between clients and designers, between designers and manufacturing centers. The results of this project not only provide feedback to individual industry partners to help develop communication practices that best serve the design process, but also provide generalized best practices and guidelines for educators to develop the communication skills for the next generation of engineers
