EF 203 - Engineering Based Problem Solving

3 Credit Hours
The objective is to develop engineering focused critical problem solving skills for undergraduate engineering and business majors. Students are introduced to engineering problems from a systems perspective, allowing students to analyze a range of systems from simple entities to larger more complex systems such as organizations. There are three phases of the critical problem solving skills as exemplified by the DRIVES model. The first phase focuses on defining the right problem. The second phase details a solution based on the concepts of flow, variation and disruption. The third phase introduces the sustainability of the solution based on the concepts of reliability and the role of culture in design. Alternative solutions will be reviewed from a business perspective.

Registration Restriction(s): Sophomore standing.
