The Project Context

  • Crispin Hales

Projects are a common denominator in engineering. During any engineering project, the design activities and the development of the designed system must be monitored. Every project is different, though certain types of project may have comparable features. What makes each project unique is the context in which it takes place. It is worth trying to map out the project context right at the start, and to be able to see the overall picture from different viewpoints and at different levels of resolution. Then we can choose particular levels of resolution, and look at the project from specific viewpoints. In this book we will be concentrating on the engineering design viewpoint.
