Description:

In this video Paul Andersen explains how engineers optimize the design solution. After a number of solutions have been identified engineers will test each of them against a given set of criteria. They will trade-off different phenomenon to arrive at a best solution. An example of this trade-off process was used in the creation of the Apollo 11 lunar module. A K-12 teaching progression is also included.
