Participant Takeaways 

  • Approach and solve large and complex problems. 
  • Assess end-to-end processes and associated challenges, in order to significantly increase the likelihood of success in developing more complex systems. 
  • Implement effective problem-solving techniques, including abstracting the problem, idea generation, concept development and refinement, system-level thinking, and proposal generation. 
  • Utilize system-level thinking skills to evaluate, refine, down select, and evaluate best ideas and concepts. 
  • Apply the Axiomatic Design methodology to a broad range of applications in manufacturing, product design, software, and architecture. 
  • Generate and present proposals that clearly articulate innovative ideas, clarify the limits of current strategies, define potential customers and impact, and outline a success-oriented system development and risk mitigation plan. 
  • Effectively communicate ideas and persuade others, and provide valuable feedback.
  • Confidently develop and execute large-scale system concepts that will drive significant positive impact.
