Abstract

Designers and Engineers view things differently. A Ways of Thinking framework relating Future Thinking, Design Thinking, Engineering Thinking and Production Thinking is introduced and explained using design documentation generated by recent student design projects from the ME310 graduate engineering design product-based-learning course sequence at Stanford University. Example student team project work and their design steps through their process is compared to a general model for the design process, a pedagogical learning model for the ME310 course and the Ways of Thinking framework.
