Each year, RobotEx Corporation has strived to follow the Engineering Design Algorithm, or EDA. Similar to the well-known scientific method, the EDA is a series of steps an engineer follows to achieve his or her goals. This algorithm coincides with the concept of kaizen, or continual improvement. The nine steps are as follows:


  1. Identify the problem or design objective.
  2. Define the goals and identify constraints.
  3. Research and gather information.
  4. Create potential design solutions.
  5. Analyze the viability of each solution.
  6. Choose the most appropriate solution.
  7. Build or implement the design.
  8. Test and evaluate the design.
  9. Repeat all steps as necessary.
