Communicating Engineering Design - A Critical Success Factor in Projects

Communicating Engineering Design - A Critical Success Factor in Projects

Abstract

Engineering projects or designs fail frequently because they are not communicated well to the management of the company in which they are carried out. Communication of project proposals, project status and project results are vital to the success: the management takes the decision on whether to go ahead with a project or to take a finished design into production. The author believes based on own observations and previous research that the requirements on communication have increased. This paper gives examples of concrete communication problems and recommendations for supporting engineers in their communication. The paper focuses on the official board-room presentation to top management. Some principles explained in the paper can, however, be applied to other frequently occurring communication of engineers.
