What are engineering goals and the development process?

Goals of Engineering (From the Student Handbook for Pre-college Science & Engineering Projects, 2005-2006 Edition):

An engineering project should state the engineering goals, the development process, and the evaluation of improvements. Engineering projects may include the following steps:

  1. Define a need.
  2. Develop design criteria.
  3. Search literature to see what has already been done.
  4. Prepare preliminary designs.
  5. Build and test a prototype.
  6. Retest and redesign as necessary.
