Insight can then be obtained into problems in group management and the efforts made at resolution. Available indicators demonstrate that this module is successful in improving how well students understand the role of design in engineering. It also seems that it persuades them to take a more thorough, innovative and multi-disciplinary view of project work. Outcomes from this include a more enlightened view of the breadth of course content, coupled with an increased willingness to engage in crossdiscipline discourse.

The weekly contacts enable staff and VPs to monitor how the teams are coping with the frustrations and offer appropriate advice. Students consistently comment that the input of the VPs is very worthwhile. They see the VPs as ‘outsiders’, which has two positive effects. Firstly the VPs are able to provide an independent arbitration service between the academics and the companies. Secondly they are perceived as engineers who have real experience of the product development process. Teams also ensure all information is logged, using a software package called BSCW that enables web-based data management.

It is important to recognise that because of the time constraints on their studies, and consequently the limited time they spend on engineering design, students can still fail to appreciate two important characteristics of new product creation – even if this framework is used. The first characteristic is that in order to deal with the complexity of many products, they evolve incrementally. Experienced designers have a large repertoire of past design solutions to draw upon and have a wide knowledge of and feel for standard parts, material properties, and production and assembly processes.
