*Integrated Design and Systems Management:
Most engineering projects require expertise from a huge range of subjects (mechanical, electrical, civil, architecture, finance, medicine, etc.) to come together to produce a solution to the identified problem. Integrated design is the process of ensuring that all of these contributors are actively engaged with each other at each stage of the design, with the intent of developing a holistic solution which leverages the knowledge of all contributors. Design that is not integrated will produce systems and solutions that are as effective as the sum of their parts. Integrated design should ideally produce systems and solutions which are greater than the sum of their parts. Currently I cannot find a resource discussing this design philosophy here, and will be building one in the coming weeks. For a great example check out the [ Whole Building Design Guide].<br />
