The design engineers could not understand what went wrong. They double-checked their calculations and determined that the windshield should have held. The problem became clear after the test engineers reviewed their procedure with the engineers from the aero­ space firm from whom they had borrowed the equipment. The aerospace test engineers asked how long they had let the bird thaw. ” There is a significant difference in impact force between a frozen eight-pound bird and a thawed bird. The test was successfully completed later with a properly thawed bird.

Collaboration with medical per­ sonnel to understand the needs of the patient is a critical part of the design process. Reliability, durability and functionality are the key design constraints. Power—Design of a heat recovery system in a power plant, increasing the plant pro­ ductivity: Computer analyses are performed as part of the design process. Cost, effi­ ciency and reliability are the main design constraints. Key mechanical components can be designed with large factors of safety since, weight is not a design concern.

Since manufac­ turing costs are such an important component in the success of a product, the design process must take into account manufacturing concerns. Manufacturing engineers identify high cost or high risk operations in the design phase of a product. When problems are iden­ tified, they work with the design engineers to generate alternatives. In the production of large items such as buildings, dams and roads, the production engi­ neer is called a construction engineer rather than a manufacturing engineer.
