Abstract

It should be apparent from the analysis presented in Chapter 9 that the design of the customer driven engineering process is not optimal in the case, described there. There is no proper definition of the different engineering sub-processes and engineering documents in addition to the lack of a formal engineering approach. The customer driven engineering process is redesigned in this chapter. The basic objective here is to redesign the engineering process in such a way as to ensure that the new process will provide a good transformation of the customer’s requirements into a product description which is feasible to produce.
