The lterative Nature of the Engineering Design Process: a Telescopic Revision Model (RESEARCH NOTE)


Mechanical Engineering, Sharif University of Technology


The satisfying of human needs through designing technical objects requires the compromisation and settling of various conflicting criteria at different stages of the engineering design process. The need for back and forth adjustment of design specifications, concept finding, and design embodiment can be considered to be carried out in a telescopic review fashion. The present study is concerned with the nature of a review technique which seems to be practically applied in actual design situations.
