The job of an engineering department is defined in terms of its relationship to the business enterprise. This establishes the perspective between the engineering department and the parent enterprise. Two basic assumptions are made: that the business requires product engineering and that the business is not a research institute or contract engineering organization.
The author then takes his premises through incorrect concepts of engineering, the engineering job, design or synthesis, paperwork, level of confidence, and costs.
