Information-Rich Engineering Design : Overview

Resources and strategies to promote the integration of high-quality information into the engineering design process


In order to create the best possible solution to a design problem, taking an informed approach is imperative.  The IRED model on the right provides guidance as to what kinds of information is needed at different design stages--the generic design stages are on the left side of the model, and the information activities on the right. The tabs provide more detail, sample resources, and strategies for finding and integrating information in your design solution.
