Elements of the Capstone Design Project Report

Engineering Design is the process of devising a system, component, or process to meet desired needs. It is a decision-making process (often iterative), in which the basic sciences, mathematics, and engineering sciences are applied to covert resources optimally to meet a stated objective.

To ensure proper design content in a Capstone Design Project Report: The following is required: Capstone Report Format

  • Statement of desired need (s)
  • Process of devising a method of satisfying those needs
  • Utilization of basic science, mathematics and engineering science
Some of the fundamental elements of design must be included:
  • The establishment of objectives and criteria.
  • Synthesis
  • Analysis
  • Construction
  • Testing
  • Evaluation
The Engineering Design Report must demonstrate most of the following features:
  • A student's creativity
  • A student's understanding of design concepts and engineering principles
  • Solution of an open-ended problem
  • Development and use of modern design theory and methodologies
  • Formulation of design problem statements and specifications
  • Consideration of alternative solutions
  • Feasibility considerations
  • Production processes
  • Concurrent engineering design
  • Detailed system descriptions
  • Mathematical modeling and/or simulation
It is essential to include a variety of realistic constraints, such as:
  • Economic factors
  • Safety
  • Reliability
  • Aesthetics
  • Ethics
  • Social
  • Codes and Standards
  • Environmental
  • Security
  • Health
