The Pennsylvania Dutch (Pennsilfaanisch Deitsch, 11px-Loudspeaker.svg.png listen (help·info)) are a cultural group formed by early German-speaking immigrants to Pennsylvania and their descendants. The word "Dutch" does not refer to the Dutch people or Dutch language, but to the German settlers, known as Deutsch (in standard German) and Deitsch (in the principal dialect they spoke, Palatine German). Most emigrated to the U.S. from Germany or Switzerland in the 17th and 18th century. Over time, the various dialects spoken by these immigrants fused into a unique dialect of German known as Pennsylvania German or Pennsylvania "Dutch". At one time, more than one-third of Pennsylvania's population spoke this language.

The Pennsylvania Dutch maintained numerous religious affiliations, with the greatest number being Lutheran or German Reformed, but also with many Anabaptists, including Mennonites, Amish, and Hutterite. The Anabaptist religions promoted a simple lifestyle, and their adherents were known as Plain people or Plain Dutch. This was in contrast to the Fancy Dutch, who tended to assimilate more easily into the American mainstream. Other religions were also represented by the late 1700s, in smaller numbers.[1]

the following is going to be part of the Article on Monday

I just give it to you in advance

as reading material for the weekend

is part of my profession as Civil Engineer

with Mr. Alexander I hope Permission and not LawSuit on PRAVDA

I am going to Publish in a Single Photo

his famous Paper


A City is Not a Tree is a widely cited [1] 1965 essay (later published as a book) by the architect and design theorist Christopher Alexander, first published in the journal Architectural Forum, and re-published many times since.[2] In 2015 the essay was published as a book including new exegesis commentaries on the original essay from other architects, engineers and physicists.[3]A City is Not a Tree has been widely described as a landmark text, and the Resource for Urban Design Information calls it "one of the classic references in the literature of the built environment and related fields".[4]


Very Interesting Presentation

the formal presentation

under heterogeneric excitation

as Dr. Thomas Caughey would have put it

in this case

checking the online review on www.myfreecams.com

for those that have better ideas than me


starts on Monday


all serious Journals have it


Peer review is the evaluation of work by one or more people of similar competence to the producers of the work (peers). It constitutes a form of self-regulation by qualified members of a profession within the relevant field. Peer review methods are employed to maintain standards of quality, improve performance, and provide credibility. In academiascholarly peer review is often used to determine an academic paper's suitability for publication. Peer review can be categorized by the type of activity and by the field or profession in which the activity occurs, e.g., medical peer review.


a few more clarifications

I am not team with Caltech or CIT




Romanian born graduate of CIT


and RO rhe random oracle ONE which is 888 and ena in greek



in codification of languages you have only letters so you cannot include the character &

but you should consider its existence anywhere


same as 13 1 & 3 in the Holy Trinity



this "lemmon" 13 is realy fast

in USA in many buildings they are so scared

they even do not have floor number 13

me and the academics at Caltech have significant academic differences


but they are great people

like this egyptian from Electrical Engineering that I knew personaly 29 years ago



talking about crucial issues

machine learning and complexity


Albert Einstein was Professor at Caltech

but he claims the max speed is 300000 km/s

while based on my data

I am 100% convinced

that divine information travels at infinite speed within the Universe

and this is the key why durring a big bang

every single particle within the Universe

goes exactly where it is supposed to go


since the speed is infinite

the brain of the universe 888

controls the particle independent of location

writting a Technical Papaer is easy

particularly when you notice blood drops falling on your keyboard

Scott but I forgot his last name

Senior Researcher, Department of Computer Science

Carnegie Mellon University in 1991

TOP advisor to SIEMENS on Neural Networks Technology


this person together with Dr. Jay McClelland

guided my reasearch and learning at CMU in Neural Networks Technologies



in all technical publications there is a Chapter with this name

for example my Ph.D. Thesis






except people on PRAVDA.ru that tolerated by excesses

and the pier review editord at myfreecams.com

as Caughey will say it


I have to confess that I have to recognize the financial abused by my indirect contributions


for example Kostas Tsailas at Prisma S.A.

a great friend and collegue Civil Engineer

paid me for 2 years my 3500 euro a month salary

for me simply to spend 70 % of the time on PRAvda Forum



same Dr. Fred Culick paid my salary of 2000 USD 1986 a month

for 19 months

for me to work on Stochastic Processes related to Acoustics in Combustion Chambers

that is why he hired me


I published two papers but never the one on Stochastic Processes, which was Part III




same story at Carnegie Mellon University

I was Assistant Professor for 3.5 years at 50000 USD 1988 salary a year

and I published nothing

I was doing just my own research in Neural Networks


which led to the formation 10 years later of

Neurosynthesis S.A. a Societe Anonyme formed October 2000


Dr. Fritz Prinz then Director at CMU EDRC

Carnegie Mellon University

Engineer Design Research Center 

who together with Glenn Sinclair the Department Head strongly supported me getting the position

of Assistant Professor in Mechanical Engineering

secured me a grant of about 30000 USD 1989

for me to actualy perform the Research in Neural Networks

with me publishing nothing actualy

here I should aknowledge also the financial support from my sister

Juliana Paparizou

here in Antwerpen since October 29th 2014


due to the Financial Crisis in Greece

she is an Unemployed gifted Architect

running an import frozen and fresh fish for the Restaurants in Manhattan Bussiness

wakes up each morning at 3:30 AM

because usualy all fishmarkets world wide open extremely early


other almost unemployed gifted Architect

my friend Monica Alexandrescu in Paris

living and raising her son in a 30 square meters apartment

in Bagneux, 7 km from the Center

her father actualy a former Ambasador and Minister of Ceausescu

provided me with extremely usefull information

such as the story behind the cuban missile crisis in 1962

durring the twice a week 3 hours meetings I had with him in Bucharest in the period

November 2012 - May 2013



now you understand why I was so gratefull to a person with different profession than mine

Architect Christofer Alexander



not to mention that my daughter Ivana finishes Mechanical Engineering this June

difficult to find a JOB

thus she provided me with the motivation to compose the Present Article

in order to revive some of my old connections with the Mechanical Engineering Industry and Academics



Finaly, in recognition of the in excess of 250000 USD

that American Universities paid me without me

publishing absolutely anything


Donald Trump

should consider this Article

as a Christmas 2017 Present from

Vladimir Putin and myself

for the simple fact that 2017 was a Year without any Major World Conflict



Donald Trump and myself share an Experience in Common

Construction Industry Bussiness and Civil Engineers Designers

get along extremely well due to the MOTTO

not bullshit but just straight to the point

Globalization (or globalisation; see spelling differences) is the increasing interaction of people, states, or countries through the growth of the international flow of money, ideas, and culture. Globalization is primarily an economic process of integration that has social and cultural aspects. It involves goods and services, and the economic resources of capital, technology, and data.[1][2] The steam locomotive, steamship, jet engine, and container ships are some of the advances in the means of transport while the rise of the telegraph and its modern offspring, the Internet and mobile phones show development in telecommunications infrastructure. All of these improvements we enjoy in the modern era have been major factors in globalization and have generated further interdependence of economic and cultural activities.[3][4][5]

Though many scholars place the origins of globalization in modern times, others trace its history long before the European Age of Discovery and voyages to the New World, some even to the third millennium BC.[6][7] Large-scale globalization began in the 1820s.[8] In the late 19th century and early 20th century, the connectivity of the world's economies and cultures grew very quickly. The term globalization is recent, only establishing its current meaning in the 1970s.[9]

In 2000, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) identified four basic aspects of globalization: trade and transactions, capital and investment movements, migration and movement of people, and the dissemination of knowledge.[10] Further, environmental challenges such as global warming, cross-boundary water, air pollution, and over-fishing of the ocean are linked with globalization.[11] Globalizing processes affect and are affected by business and work organization, economics, socio-cultural resources, and the natural environment. Academic literature commonly subdivides globalization into three major areas: economic globalization, cultural globalization, and political globalization.[12]


Richard Phillips Feynman (/ˈfnmən/; May 11, 1918 – February 15, 1988) was an American theoretical physicist known for his work in the path integral formulation of quantum mechanics, the theory of quantum electrodynamics, and the physics of the superfluidity of supercooled liquid helium, as well as in particle physics for which he proposed the parton model. For his contributions to the development of quantum electrodynamics, Feynman, jointly with Julian Schwinger and Shin'ichirō Tomonaga, received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1965.

Feynman developed a widely used pictorial representation scheme for the mathematical expressions governing the behavior of subatomic particles, which later became known as Feynman diagrams. During his lifetime, Feynman became one of the best-known scientists in the world. In a 1999 poll of 130 leading physicists worldwide by the British journal Physics World he was ranked as one of the ten greatest physicists of all time.[2]

He assisted in the development of the atomic bomb during World War II and became known to a wide public in the 1980s as a member of the Rogers Commission, the panel that investigated the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster. Along with his work in theoretical physics, Feynman has been credited with pioneering the field of quantum computing and introducing the concept of nanotechnology. He held the Richard C. Tolman professorship in theoretical physics at the California Institute of Technology.

Feynman was a keen popularizer of physics through both books and lectures including a 1959 talk on top-down nanotechnology called There's Plenty of Room at the Bottom and the three-volume publication of his undergraduate lectures, The Feynman Lectures on Physics. Feynman also became known through his semi-autobiographical books Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman! and What Do You Care What Other People Think? and books written about him such as Tuva or Bust! by Ralph Leighton and Genius: The Life and Science of Richard Feynman by James Gleick.


Robert Nesta "Bob" Marley, OM (6 February 1945 – 11 May 1981) was a Jamaican singer-songwriter who became an international musical and cultural icon,[1][2][3][4][5] blending mostly reggae, ska and rocksteady in his compositions. Starting out in 1963 with the group the Wailers, he forged a distinctive songwriting and vocal style that would later resonate with audiences worldwide. The Wailers would go on to release some of the earliest reggae records with producer Lee "Scratch" Perry.[6]

After the Wailers disbanded in 1974,[7] Marley pursued a solo career upon his relocation to England that culminated in the release of the album Exodus in 1977, which established his worldwide reputation and elevated his status as one of the world's best-selling artists of all time, with sales of more than 75 million records.[8][9]Exodus stayed on the British album charts for 56 consecutive weeks. It included four UK hit singles: "Exodus", "Waiting in Vain", "Jamming", and "One Love". In 1978, he released the album Kaya, which included the hit singles "Is This Love" and "Satisfy My Soul". The greatest hits album, Legend, was released in 1984, three years after Marley died. It subsequently became the best-selling reggae album of all time.

Diagnosed with acral lentiginous melanoma in 1977, Marley died on 11 May 1981 in Miami at age 36. He was a committed Rastafari who infused his music with a sense of spirituality.[10]:242[11] He is credited with popularising reggae music around the world and served as a symbol of Jamaican culture and identity. Marley has also evolved into a global symbol and inspired numerous items of merchandise.


Herbert Alexander Simon (June 15, 1916 – February 9, 2001) was an American political scientisteconomistsociologistpsychologist, and computer scientist whose research ranged across the fields of cognitive psychologycognitive science, computer science, public administration, economics, management, philosophy of science, sociology, and political science, unified by studies of decision-making.[5]

Simon was among the pioneers of several of today's important scientific domains, including artificial intelligenceinformation processingdecision-makingproblem-solvingorganization theorycomplex systems, and computer simulation of scientific discovery. He coined the terms bounded rationality and satisficing, and was among the earliest to analyze the architecture of complexity and to propose a preferential attachment mechanism to explain power lawdistributions.[6][7]

Simon received many top-level honors in life, including the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences in 1978 and the Turing Award in 1975. He also received honorary degrees from various universities, such as from Harvard University. As of 2016, Simon was the most cited person in Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Psychology on Google Scholar.[8] With almost a thousand highly cited publications, he was one of the most influential social scientists of the twentieth century.

For many years he held the post of Richard King Mellon Professor at Carnegie Mellon University[9] As a testament to his interdisciplinary approach, Simon was affiliated with such varied Carnegie Mellon departments as the School of Computer ScienceTepper School of Business, departments of Philosophy, Social and Decision Sciences, and Psychology.


Aldo Romeo Luigi Moro (Italian pronunciation: [ˈaldo ˈmɔːro]; 23 September 1916 – 9 May 1978) was an Italian statesman and a prominent member of the Christian Democracy party. He served as 38th Prime Minister of Italy, from 1963 to 1968, and then from 1974 to 1976. He was one of Italy's longest-serving post-war Prime Ministers, holding power for a combined total of more than six years; due to his accommodation with the Communist leader Enrico Berlinguer, known as Historic Compromise, Moro is widely considered one of the most prominent fathers of the Italian centre-left and one of the greatest and most popular leaders in the history of the Italian Republic.

A leader of Christian Democracy (Democrazia Cristiana, DC), Moro was considered an intellectual and a patient mediator, especially in the internal life of his party. He was kidnapped on 16 March 1978 by the Red Brigades and killed after 55 days of captivity.


Pope John Paul I (Latin: Ioannes Paulus I; Italian: Giovanni Paolo I; born Albino Luciani;[a]Italian: [alˈbiːno luˈtʃaːni]; 17 October 1912 – 28 September 1978) served as Pope of the Catholic Church and sovereign of the Vatican City from 26 August 1978 to his sudden death 33 days later. He was the first pope to have been born in the twentieth century. His reign is among the shortest in papal history, resulting in the most recent Year of Three Popes, the first to occur since 1605. John Paul I remains the most recent Italian-born pope, the last in a succession of such popes that started with Clement VII in 1523.

He was declared a Servant of God by his successor, John Paul II, on 23 November 2003, the first step on the road to sainthood. Pope Francis confirmed his heroic virtue on 8 November 2017 and named him as Venerable.

Before the papal conclave that elected him, he expressed his desire not to be elected, telling those close to him that he would decline the papacy if elected, but, upon the cardinals electing him, he felt an obligation to say "yes".[2] He was the first pontiff to have a double name, choosing "John Paul" in honour of his two immediate predecessors, John XXIII and Paul VI. He explained that he was indebted to John XXIII and to Paul VI for naming him a bishop and then a cardinal respectively. Furthermore, he was the first pope to add the regnal number "I", designating himself "the First".

His two immediate successors, John Paul II and Benedict XVI, later recalled the warm qualities of the late pontiff in several addresses. In Italy, he is remembered with the appellatives of "Il Papa del Sorriso" (The Smiling Pope)[3] and "Il Sorriso di Dio" (The smile of God).[4]Time magazine and other publications referred to him as The September Pope.[5] He is also known in Italy as "Papa Luciani". In his town of birth, Canale d'Agordo, there is a museum that has been made and named in his honour that is dedicated to his life and his brief papacy.


Jacques Romain Georges Brel (French: [ʒak bʁɛl]; 8 April 1929 – 9 October 1978) was a Belgian singer, songwriter, actor and director who composed and performed literate, thoughtful, and theatrical songs that generated a large, devoted following—initially in Belgium and France, later throughout the world. He was widely considered a master of the modern chanson.[1] Although he recorded most of his songs in French and occasionally in Dutch, he became an influence on English-speaking songwriters and performers, such as David Bowie, Alex Harvey, Marc Almond and Rod McKuen. English translations of his songs were recorded by many top performers in the United States, including Ray Charles, Judy Collins, John Denver, the Kingston Trio, Nina Simone, Frank Sinatra, Scott Walker, and Andy Williams.[2]

In French-speaking countries, Brel was also a successful actor, appearing in ten films. He also directed two films, one of which, Le Far West, was nominated for the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival in 1973.[3] Having sold over 25 million records worldwide, Brel is the third best-selling Belgian recording artist of all time. Brel married Thérèse "Miche" Michielsen in 1950 and the couple had three children. He also had a romantic relationship with actress and dancer Maddly Bamy from 1972 until his death in 1978.


Pope Paul VI (Latin: Paulus VI; Italian: Paolo VI), born Giovanni Battista Enrico Antonio Maria Montini[a] (Italian pronunciation: [dʒioˈvanːi baˈtːista enˈriko anˈtonjo marˈija monˈtini]; 26 September 1897 – 6 August 1978), reigned from 21 June 1963 to his death in 1978. Succeeding John XXIII, he continued the Second Vatican Council which he closed in 1965, implementing its numerous reforms, and fostered improved ecumenical relations with Eastern Orthodox and Protestants, which resulted in many historic meetings and agreements.[7] Montini served in the Holy See's Secretariat of State from 1922 to 1954. While in the Secretariat of State, Montini and Domenico Tardini were considered as the closest and most influential advisors of Pope Pius XII, who in 1954 named him Archbishop of Milan, the largest Italian diocese. Montini later became the Secretary of the Italian Bishops' Conference. John XXIII elevated him to the College of Cardinals in 1958, and after the death of John XXIII, Montini was considered one of his most likely successors.[8]

Upon his election to the papacy, Montini took the name Paul VI. He re-convened the Second Vatican Council, which had automatically closed with the death of John XXIII. After the Council had concluded its work, Paul VI took charge of the interpretation and implementation of its mandates, often walking a thin line between the conflicting expectations of various groups within Catholicism. The magnitude and depth of the reforms affecting all fields of Church life during his pontificate exceeded similar reform programmes of his predecessors and successors. Paul VI spoke repeatedly to Marian conventions and mariological meetings, visited Marian shrines and issued three Marian encyclicals. Following his famous predecessor Saint Ambrose of Milan, he named Mary as the Mother of the Church during the Second Vatican Council.[9] Paul VI described himself as a humble servant for a suffering humanity and demanded significant changes from the rich in North America and Europe in favour of the poor in the Third World.[10] His positions on birth control, promulgated famously in the 1968 encyclical Humanae vitae were often contested, especially in Western Europe and North America. The same opposition emerged in reaction to the political aspects of some of his teaching.

Following the standard procedures that lead to sainthood, Pope Benedict XVI declared that the late pontiff had lived a life of heroic virtue and conferred the title of Venerable upon him on 20 December 2012. Pope Francis beatified him on 19 October 2014 after the recognition of a miracle attributed to his intercession. His liturgical feast is celebrated on the date of his birth on 26 September.

Popes John Paul I, John Paul II, and Benedict XVI were made cardinals during his papacy.


Andy Warhol (/ˈwɔːrhɒl/;[1] born Andrew Warhola; August 6, 1928 – February 22, 1987) was an American artist, director and producer who was a leading figure in the visual art movement known as pop art. His works explore the relationship between artistic expression, celebrity culture, and advertising that flourished by the 1960s, and span a variety of media, including painting, silkscreening, photography, film, and sculpture. Some of his best known works include the silkscreen paintings Campbell's Soup Cans (1962) and Marilyn Diptych (1962), the experimental film Chelsea Girls (1966), and the multimedia events known as the Exploding Plastic Inevitable (1966–67).

Born and raised in Pittsburgh, Warhol initially pursued a successful career as a commercial illustrator. After exhibiting his work in several galleries in the late 1950s, he began to receive recognition as an influential and controversial artist. His New York studio, The Factory, became a well-known gathering place that brought together distinguished intellectuals, drag queens, playwrights, Bohemian street people, Hollywood celebrities, and wealthy patrons. He promoted a collection of personalities known as Warhol superstars, and is credited with coining the widely used expression "15 minutes of fame." In the late 1960s, he managed and produced the experimental rock band The Velvet Underground and founded Interview magazine. He authored numerous books, including The Philosophy of Andy Warhol and Popism: The Warhol Sixties. He is also notable as a gay man who lived openly as such before the gay liberation movement. After a gallbladder surgery in 1987, Warhol died in February of that year at the age of 58.

Warhol has been the subject of numerous retrospective exhibitions, books, and feature and documentary films. The Andy Warhol Museum in his native city of Pittsburgh, which holds an extensive permanent collection of art and archives, is the largest museum in the United States dedicated to a single artist. Many of his creations are very collectible and highly valuable. The highest price ever paid for a Warhol painting is US$105 million for a 1963 canvas titled Silver Car Crash (Double Disaster); his works include some of the most expensive paintings ever sold.[2] A 2009 article in The Economist described Warhol as the "bellwether of the art market".[3]

7.72. Then, through mercy from Us, We saved him and those who were in his company, while we uprooted those who denied Our signs and Revelations and were not believers.


Pasolini was murdered on 2 November 1975 on the beach at Ostia. He had been run over several times by his own car. Multiple bones were broken and his testicles were crushed by what appeared to be a metal bar. An autopsy revealed that his body had been partially burned with gasoline after death. The crime was long viewed as a Mafia-style revenge killing, extremely unlikely for one person to have carried out. Pasolini was buried in Casarsa. Giuseppe (Pino) Pelosi (1958-2017), then 17 years old, was caught driving Pasolini's car and confessed to the murder. He was convicted in 1976, initially with "unknown others," but this phrase was later removed from the verdict.[19][20]

Twenty-nine years later, on 7 May 2005, Pelosi retracted his confession, which he said had been made under the threat of violence to his family. He claimed that three people "with a Southern accent" had committed the murder, insulting Pasolini as a "dirty communist."[21]

Other evidence uncovered in 2005 suggested that Pasolini had been murdered by an extortionist. Testimony by Pasolini's friend Sergio Citti indicated that some of the rolls of film from Salò had been stolen, and that Pasolini planned to meet with the thieves on 2 November 1975 after a visit to Stockholm.[22][23][24][25] Citti's investigation uncovered additional evidence, including a bloody wooden stick and an eyewitness who said he saw a group of men pull Pasolini from the car.[19][20] The Roman police reopened the case after Pelosi's retraction, but the judges responsible for the investigation found that the new elements were insufficient to justify a continued inquiry.

Death to His HomeTown


and adult education

Well, no cannon ball did fly, no rifles cut us down
No bombs fell from the sky, no blood soaked the ground
No powder flash blinded the eye
No deathly thunder sounded
But just as sure as the hand of God
They brought death to my hometown
They brought death to my hometown

Now, no shells ripped the evening sky
No cities burning down
No army stormed the shores for which we’d die
No dictators were crowned
I awoke on a quiet night, I never heard a sound
The marauders raided in the dark
And brought death to my hometown
They brought death to my hometown

They destroyed our families, factories
And they took our homes
They left our bodies on the plains
The vultures picked our bones

So, listen up my sonny boy, be ready when they come
For they’ll be returning sure as the rising sun
Now get yourself a song to sing
And sing it ’til you’re done
Sing it hard and sing it well
Send the robber barons straight to hell

The greedy thieves who came around
And ate the flesh of everything they found
Whose crimes have gone unpunished now
Who walk the streets as free men now

They brought death to our hometown, boys
Death to our hometown
Death to our hometown, boys
Death to our hometown

16th of January 2018 at 08:35 UTC : my statement concerning 1.1

Given the seriousity of this seismic event I am forced to change my initial plans concerning the present Publication

It is going to take more than just this week, just completing slowly slowly the Sub Chapters in the Table of Contents

while trying to evaluate potential reactions to each such contribution.

Furthermore, even if you decide to Brake the Code of Silence, I am not going to change practicaly anything regarding my daily schedule at work engaged in this very responsible activity

You already have my commitment that I have full separation personal/professional life

never mixing them up

Professionaly with my theoretical and practical knowledge, I am 100% convinced of the 2 3 1 Divine Model

thus you do have to accept and tolerate my "FRENCH" when "talking in the name of GOD"

In conclussion I will continue Work on the Present Article on Monday January 22nd 2018


18th of January 2018 at 08:35 UTC : small incident

Because I like the person involved and we frequent same places in the last two years, I only warn you for the last time

The Holy Trinity has the Military Means to defeat all countries on Earth united in less than a minute, while you will all come to me with the papers signed the next morning

Chapter 2 : Dr. Herb's Simon Design for the Future Definitions


2.1  Engineering Design Process


Listen to Herb Simon Presenting the Need to Design our Future at time 08:30

we ourself, at least the younger of us, are going to be part of the future

so being part of it, our task is not realy to predict the future

our task is to design it

to design a suistanable and acceptable world

and to devote our efforts to bring that future about

because we are not observers of the future but we are the actors


The engineering design process is a methodical series of steps that engineers use in creating functional products and processes. The process is highly iterative - parts of the process often need to be repeated many times before another can be entered - though the part(s) that get iterated and the number of such cycles in any given project may vary.

The steps tend to get articulated, subdivided, and/or illustrated in different ways, but they generally reflect certain core principles regarding the underlying concepts and their respective sequence and interrelationship.

…It is a decision making process (often iterative) in which the basic sciences, mathematics, and engineering sciences are applied to convert resources optimally to meet a stated objective. Among the fundamental elements of the design process are the establishment of objectives and criteria, synthesis, analysis, construction, testing and evaluation.

— ABET[1]

Common Stages of the Engineering Design Process[edit]

One framing of the engineering design process delineates the following stages: research, conceptualization, feasibility assessment, establishing design requirements, preliminary design, detailed design, production planning and tool design, and production.[2] Others, noting that "different authors (in both research literature and in textbooks) define different phases of the design process with varying activities occurring within them," have suggested more simplified/generalized models - such as problem definition, conceptual design, preliminary design, detailed design, and design communication.[3] A standard summary of the process in European engineering design literature is that of clarification of the task, conceptual design, embodiment design, detail design.[4] In these examples, other key aspects - such as concept evaluation and prototyping - are subsets and/or extensions of one or more of the listed steps. It's also important to understand that in these as well as other articulations of the process, different terminology employed may have varying degrees of overlap, which affects what steps get stated explicitly or deemed "high level" versus subordinate in any given model.


Various stages of the design process (and even earlier) can involve a significant amount of time spent on locating information and research.[5] Consideration should be given to the existing applicable literature, problems and successes associated with existing solutions, costs, and marketplace needs.[5]

The source of information should be relevant, including existing solutions. Reverse engineering can be an effective technique if other solutions are available on the market.[5] Other sources of information include the Internet, local libraries, available government documents, personal organizations, trade journals, vendor catalogs and individual experts available.[5]

Design requirements[edit]

Establishing design requirements and conducting requirement analysis, sometimes termed problem definition (or deemed a related activity), is one of the most important elements in the design process,[6] and this task is often performed at the same time as a feasibility analysis. The design requirements control the design of the product or process being developed, throughout the engineering design process. These include basic things like the functions, attributes, and specifications - determined after assessing user needs. Some design requirements include hardware and software parameters, maintainabilityavailability, and testability.[2]


In some cases, a feasibility study is carried out after which schedules, resource plans and estimates for the next phase are developed. The feasibility study is an evaluation and analysis of the potential of a proposed project to support the process of decision making. It outlines and analyses alternatives or methods of achieving the desired outcome. The feasibility study helps to narrow the scope of the project to identify the best scenario. A feasibility report is generated following which Post Feasibility Review is performed.

The purpose of a feasibility assessment is to determine whether the engineer's project can proceed into the design phase. This is based on two criteria: the project needs to be based on an achievable idea, and it needs to be within cost constraints. It is important to have engineers with experience and good judgment to be involved in this portion of the feasibility study.[2]


A concept study (conceptualizationconceptual design) is often a phase of project planning that includes producing ideas and taking into account the pros and cons of implementing those ideas. This stage of a project is done to minimize the likelihood of error, manage costs, assess risks, and evaluate the potential success of the intended project. In any event, once an engineering issue or problem is defined, potential solutions must be identified. These solutions can be found by using ideation, the mental process by which ideas are generated. In fact, this step is often termed Ideation or "Concept Generation." The following are widely used techniques:[2]

  • trigger word - a word or phrase associated with the issue at hand is stated, and subsequent words and phrases are evoked.
  • morphological analysis - independent design characteristics are listed in a chart, and different engineering solutions are proposed for each solution. Normally, a preliminary sketch and short report accompany the morphological chart.
  • synectics - the engineer imagines him or herself as the item and asks, "What would I do if I were the system?" This unconventional method of thinking may find a solution to the problem at hand. The vital aspects of the conceptualization step is synthesis. Synthesis is the process of taking the element of the concept and arranging them in the proper way. Synthesis creative process is present in every design.
  • brainstorming - this popular method involves thinking of different ideas, typically as part of a small group, and adopting these ideas in some form as a solution to the problem

Various generated ideas must then undergo a concept evaluation step, which utilizes various tools to compare and contrast the relative strengths and weakness of possible alternatives.

Preliminary design[edit]

The preliminary design, or high-level design includes (also called FEED), often bridges a gap between design conception and detailed design, particularly in cases where the level of conceptualization achieved during ideation is not sufficient for full evaluation. So in this task, the overall system configuration is defined, and schematicsdiagrams, and layouts of the project may provide early project configuration. (This notably varies a lot by field, industry, and product.) During detailed design and optimization, the parameters of the part being created will change, but the preliminary design focuses on creating the general framework to build the project on.[2]

S. Blanchard and J. Fabrycky describe it as: “The ‘whats’ initiating conceptual design produce ‘hows’ from the conceptual design evaluation effort applied to feasible conceptual design concepts. Next, the ‘hows’ are taken into preliminary design through the means of allocated requirements. There they become ‘whats’ and drive preliminary design to address ‘hows’ at this lower level.”

Detailed design[edit]

Following FEED is the Detailed Design (Detailed Engineering) phase, which may consist of procurement of materials as well. This phase further elaborates each aspect of the project/product by complete description through solid modelingdrawings as well as specifications.

Design for manufacturability[edit]

Design for manufacturability (DFM) is the general engineering art of designing products in such a way that they are easy to manufacture.

  • Operating parameters
  • Operating and nonoperating environmental stimuli
  • Test requirements
  • External dimensions
  • Maintenance and testability provisions
  • Materials requirements
  • Reliability requirements
  • External surface treatment
  • Design life
  • Packaging requirements
  • External marking

Computer-aided design (CAD) programs have made detailed design phase more efficient. For example, a CAD program can provide optimization to reduce volume without hindering a part's quality. It can also calculate stress and displacement using the finite element method to determine stresses throughout the part. [7]

Production planning[edit]

The production planning and tool design consists of planning how to mass-produce the product and which tools should be used in the manufacturing process. Tasks to complete in this step include selecting materials, selection of the production processes, determination of the sequence of operations, and selection of tools such as jigs, fixtures, metal cutting and metal or plastics forming tools. This task also involves additional prototype testing iterations to ensure the mass-produced version meets qualification testing standards.[2]

Comparison with the Scientific Method[edit]

The engineering design process bears some similarity to the scientific method[8] Both processes begin with existing knowledge, and gradually become more specific in the search for knowledge (in the case of "pure" or basic science) or a solution (in the case of "applied" science, such as engineering). The key difference between the engineering process and the scientific process is that the engineering process focuses on designcreativity and innovation while the scientific process emphasizes Discovery (observation).



Was it realy a coincidence

that I started Research on this Project on March 26th 2000

the day Vladimir Putin was elected President of the Russian Federation

without me at that time not realy knowing who Putin realy was

I simply woke up that morning

I weighted 123 kg and while my former wife and my child were sleeping

I designed a 3.5 months schedule to lose weight

and indeed by my birthday I followed the initial design and I was 87 kg

on August 5th 2000


or the fact that following the YUGO war right next  door to us

while Herb Simon was giving the Presentation above

in October 2000

Neurosynthesis Societe Anonime was formed Legaly

an effort by my former wife Elsa and myself

to use our enineering design experience and knowledge

in order to shape a better future for our only child Ivana


before returning to Greece

in November 1991 I had the honor to have a three hours lunch with Dr. Herb Simon

in which we discussed all these Artificial Intelligence and Engineering Design Problems

9 Years actualy Prior to Herb Simon giving the Impressive Speach above

I added this first Video

because the Italian Director of the Cultural Center speaks like my friend Alberto Lotti

who honored me with his presence and a great present

at my Wedding Reception in 1993


the second video is about Objectivism

not such a distant cousin of

Bounded Rationality Concept of Herb Simon

accepted in Economics

but NOT realy in the way you operate the Global Society

for example divide 27 by 13

according to Isaac Asimov

two posible models of the Divine

Testament 2 3 0 GOD realy not alive an Divine automata instead

and the 2 3 1 Divine Model that I Uniquely Represent

with 888 alive the RO Random Oracle


HE draws a Random ARK on the Entire Earth

and has this 230 or 231 properties accuracy 10 meters

from Hotel Beveren

and the Stock Markets World Wide

are manipulated for reverse gambling

and you accept it and not put me at Beveren Hotel

as 888 ordered you to do

total UNBOUNDED Irrationality

same people that Objected to Objectivism in general

I added in this contribution

two good presentations about design in general

seminars presented at Stanford University

thus reliable and interesting


what I can add as Engineer Designer with 10 Years experience in Road and Bridge Design

is that the above field is the most rigoreous

and I will explain you why

field of engineering design

but still there exists PROBLEMS associated with it


why the worst engineering design

is the way we organized the global society of 7.5 billion people

what Herb Simon called Design for our Future

because we are Actors and not Spectators in determining our own Future

a totaly out of control process

recognized by the Speaker of the Video Bellow

who said that he talked with the CEO of Shell Royal Dutch

and he was also very concerned

about the future of the Energy Sector


I will discuss all these Issues in detail in the Chapters that Follow

Dr. Fritz Prinz then Director at CMU EDRC

Carnegie Mellon University

Engineer Design Research Center 

who together with Glenn Sinclair the Department Head strongly supported me getting the position

of Assistant Professor in Mechanical Engineering

secured me a grant of about 30000 USD 1989

for me to actualy perform the Research in Neural Networks

with me publishing nothing actualy





so surprisingly enough even if a trained Civil Engineer

after the work with Dr. Fred Culick in acoustic driven combustion instabilities for rockets system

I ended up Teaching in the Department of Mechanical Engineering

where I was an active member in two research groups

Neural Networks Interdisciplinary Research Group

people from Computer Science, Cognitive Science, different Engineerings and Engineering Design

and with funding from the Director Fritz Prinz a member of

Engineering Design Research Center



In the Department of Mechanical Engineering

where Glenn Sinclair was the Department Head

(now at Loisianna State University)

and 22 Faculty Members

including my best friend Subhas Desa now at University of California Santa Cruz


doing Research Primarly in Robotics Kinematics and Engineering Design


BIO: Subhas Desa is the Undergraduate Director of the Information Systems and Technology Management Program in the School of Engineering at UC Santa Cruz. Dr. Desa has extensive research, teaching, consulting, and industrial experience in the development, management, and commercialization of technologies and products. His research areas include product design and development, manufacturing, advanced physical modeling and control, robotics, and, more recently, supply-chain modeling and control. His research work on the integration of design and manufacturing at Carnegie Mellon University , received the Eastman Kodak and American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Design Automation Committee Award in 1989. At the Sibley School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Cornell he developed new project-based graduate and undergraduate courses in product design and development, and also received an Engineering "Excellence in Teaching Award" in connection with teaching these courses. His industrial experience includes the development of the thermal ink jet at Hewlett Packard, physical modeling and control of complex technological systems ranging from giant magneto resistive (GMR) thin films to autonomous communication satellites at SC Solutions, and business strategy for High-Tech at McKinsey. At UCSC, he has created and taught a sequence of courses in the Management of Technology (MOT), and has been nominated for Excellence in Teaching in regard to teaching these courses. The first course in the MOT sequence focuses on the development, commercialization, and management of products, while the second course focuses on the analysis, design, and optimization of the supply chain network for the distribution of the product. Dr. Desa received his undergraduate degree from the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras , and his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford University .

  • Teaching Professor, Technology Management
  • Technology & Information Management

my research work in Engineering Design was in fact very similar

to the Bounded Rationality Concept of Herb Simon in Economics

what I was saying is that XXI Century Engineering Design Problems

are very expensive computationaly because they are extremely complex

so you cannot realy apply traditional Operational Research Optimization Techniques

because for each set of parameters you may need hours of computation on a MainFrame Computer

BUT there are only a few Critical Parameters

so then it is a good idea to associate a Neural Network Model for the Cost function and constraints

by simple Simulation of the entire Complex System

and then apply the Classical Operational research Techniques to the Neural Networks Modeled Functions

that is why the Societe Anonyme NEUROSYNTHESIS S.A.

founded in October 2000 by my former wife and myself had this strange name

now I do not use the approximate neural network model for this purpose

but RO from EU RO the Random Oracle

same thing but bigger Neural Network,

the Entire Computer of the UNIVERSE 888

and somehow Herb Simon heard about the idea from the name of my Company

got excited and died 3 months after His Presentations

the best and worst Faculty members in the Department were Fritz Prinz and Jonathan Cagan, respectively


why was Fritz Prinz the best ?

just imagine he developed His Own Solid Modeller Software called Noodles

like 3D Solid Works but in 1988












why was he the worst ?

first of all got a Faculty Position based on Connections

after his interview we had a Faculty meeting where was voted 14 against 8 not to offer him a JOB

soon after the Department Head stops me on the corridor. Look Leonidas people want to hire Jonathan, so I ask for your vote again.

I said NO.

Glenn asks again, you know Leonidas in June we have the decision for Salary Increase and Faculty evaluation, your VOTE

NO and they hired him and I resigned returning to Greece

the true reason I voted against was that this person did not understand what Engineering Design

is truly about

just check the video bellow so you understand what I mean


so what his presentation and Ph.D. was about

he took a simple problem with 5 parameters

for which the cost could have been derived mathematicaly

so then he did an optimization on an analytical mathematical function with 5 parameters

and called that Engineering Design


by contrast with Herb Simon

you notice from the Video

that he continues to view the profession of Engineer

with a total superficiality

addressing the issue of marketing the product

and not properly Engineering the Economic System of humans and products

Engineering Design in the XXI Century level

like Dr. Desa does for example on a smaller scale than Herb Simon
