Part of the agenda of this book is to “sell” the CDIO process as a thinking system that can be used well beyond traditional engineering realms. When working on each stage of the CDIO process, engineers ask themselves the following questions in relation to the product they are making and how are they making it.

Conceiving the plane as a super-system will set into action numerous processes to CDIO subsystems necessary to make the plane a reality; however, we shall focus on the plane itself to demonstrate the CDIO process. Subsystems include airframe, jet engine, avionics, etc. With the Conceiving stage completed, the Design stage can start. Here engineers will be making a series of complex technological calculations, tests, decisions, and compromises. There will be many conflicting requirements to consider, including safety, technical, economical, and legal requirements.

Industrial Revolution (1712 AD) The development of the steam engine led to the dawn of the industrial revolution.
