A design review is a milestone within a product development process whereby a design is evaluated against its requirements in order to verify the outcomes of previous activities and identify issues before committing to - and if need to be re-prioritise - further work.
Design Science was introduced in 1957 by R. Buckminster Fuller who defined it as a systematic form of designing.
A diagram is a symbolic representation of information according to some visualization technique.
Discovery is the act of detecting something new, or something "old" that had been unrecognized as meaningful.
A displacement is a vector whose length is the shortest distance from the initial to the final position of a point P. It quantifies both the distance and direction of an imaginary motion along a straight line from the initial position to the final position of the point.
Engineering analysis involves the application of scientific analytic principles and processes to reveal the properties and state of a system, device or mechanism under study.
Engineering design management is a knowledge area within engineering management.
Engineering optimization is the subject which uses optimization techniques to achieve design goals in engineering.
An expert is someone who has a prolonged or intense experience through practice and education in a particular field.
Feasibility Study is an assessment of the practicality of a proposed project or system.
The finite element method (FEM), is a numerical method for solving problems of engineering and mathematical physics.
Front-End Engineering (FEE), or Front-End Engineering Design (FEED), is an engineering design approach used to control project expenses and thoroughly plan a project before a fix bid quote is submitted.
Ideation is the creative process of generating, developing, and communicating new ideas, where an idea is understood as a basic element of thought that can be either visual, concrete, or abstract.
Innovation can be defined simply as a "new idea, device or method".
Interaction design, often abbreviated as IxD, is "the practice of designing interactive digital products, environments, systems, and services." Beyond the digital aspect, interaction design is also useful when creating physical (non-digital) products, exploring how a user might interact with it.
Iteration is the act of repeating a process, to generate a (possibly unbounded) sequence of outcomes, with the aim of approaching a desired goal, target or result.
John P. Mylopoulos (born 1943) is a Greek-Canadian computer scientist, Professor at the University of Toronto, Canada, and at the University of Trento, Italy.
A library is a collection of sources of information and similar resources, made accessible to a defined community for reference or borrowing.
In engineering, maintainability is the ease with which a product can be maintained in order to.
Manufacturing is the production of merchandise for use or sale using labour and machines, tools, chemical and biological processing, or formulation.
Marketing is the study and management of exchange relationships.
Mass production, also known as flow production or continuous production, is the production of large amounts of standardized products, including and especially on assembly lines.
In mathematics, computer science and operations research, mathematical optimization or mathematical programming, alternatively spelled optimisation, is the selection of a best element (with regard to some criterion) from some set of available alternatives.

Reliability engineering is a sub-discipline of systems engineering that emphasizes dependability in the lifecycle management of a product.
In product development and process optimization, a requirement is a singular documented physical or functional need that a particular design, product or process aims to satisfy.
In systems engineering and software engineering, requirements analysis encompasses those tasks that go into determining the needs or conditions to meet for a new or altered product or project, taking account of the possibly conflicting requirements of the various stakeholders, analyzing, documenting, validating and managing software or system requirements.
Research comprises "creative and systematic work undertaken to increase the stock of knowledge, including knowledge of humans, culture and society, and the use of this stock of knowledge to devise new applications." It is used to establish or confirm facts, reaffirm the results of previous work, solve new or existing problems, support theorems, or develop new theories.
Reverse engineering, also called back engineering, is the process by which a man-made object is deconstructed to reveal its designs, architecture, or to extract knowledge from the object; similar to scientific research, the only difference being that scientific research is about a natural phenomenon.

A schematic, or schematic diagram, is a representation of the elements of a system using abstract, graphic symbols rather than realistic pictures.
Scientific method is an empirical method of knowledge acquisition, which has characterized the development of natural science since at least the 17th century, involving careful observation, which includes rigorous skepticism about what one observes, given that cognitive assumptions about how the world works influence how one interprets a percept; formulating hypotheses, via induction, based on such observations; experimental testing and measurement of deductions drawn from the hypotheses; and refinement (or elimination) of the hypotheses based on the experimental findings.

A specification often refers to a set of documented requirements to be satisfied by a material, design, product, or service.
In continuum mechanics, stress is a physical quantity that expresses the internal forces that neighboring particles of a continuous material exert on each other, while strain is the measure of the deformation of the material.
