Two Indicators - Application of Systematic

Engineering Synthesis and Design Processes

In the previous tutorial, we looked into the first two indicators of the third element of the
second part of the Professional Engineer Summary Statement document that is mainly focused
on the application of the applicants engineering ability. Today we will explore remaining two
indicators of the third element of competency entitled: 2.3 Application of systematic
engineering synthesis and design processes. If you missed the previous part, go back and check
that first.
c.) Executes and leads a whole systems design cycle
approach. (for a more detailed description on this one,
check EAs booklet)
Example: I created a scaled down version of the platform,
in order to conduct additional tests that would help me
ensure that the particular design offers adequate
buoyancy for the carrying of the shipments.
Example: I pre-estimated what parts would be needed, and I also provisioned for the availability
of the required tools that would be needed during the assembly procedure. I did this by
studying the manufacturers parts diagram.
Example: I chose a railed platform design against the option
of a legged one as this design was estimated to compensate
the extra cost in a year, due to the fact that there would be
no forklift involvement required for the positioning of the
platform in front of the loading/unloading decks.
Example: Due to the nature of the crane, I had to design it
while conducting tipping tests in the same time. This way I

ensured that the crane would not cause any accidents while operating at the suggested limits.
d.) Is aware of the accountabilities of the professional engineer in relation to the design
authority role.
Example: During the buildings design phase, I acted as an expert consultant for the client,
checking the drawings and ensuring that all aspects of the design were in full compliance with
the project requirements. Based on these evaluations, I gave my approval on the designs, or
submitted a statement for modification.
Example: As the Senior Designer in the project, I set three stages of design evaluation for the
various designs (building, HVAC, plumbing). The first was a preliminary check conducted by me,
the second involved the calculation of the generate d forces in all elements in the designed
networks, and the third was an individual simulation of the designed systems on structural and
static forces analysis software, and fluid flow simulation tools.
