Applying Critical Thinking To Make Better Engineering Decisions
My previous video post "Has Critical Thinking Become A Lost Art In Manufacturing" sparked a really good discussion around the current state of critical thinking in the manufacturing industry and what makes a great critical thinker. This time I discuss critical thinking and engineering decision-making. If you are an engineer of pretty much any kind, chances are you are expected to make decisions ALL THE TIME. So, the question becomes: How does one make good engineering decisions? What makes a good engineering decision? Here are a few concepts around how to apply critical thinking when making an engineering decision. While I consider these concepts guardrails to guide my decision-making process and they seem to have worked for me, they may not be the silver bullet for any and all engineering decisions.
