Engineering: Addressing Unintended Consequences as a Professional

Experience Level: Any level of experience

This session explores the many cases where the engineering ‘cure’ is worse than the initial problem.  Mr. Easley walks through basic scenarios where forethought and adequate stakeholder involvement could have prevented some major problems.  The session provides some ‘checklist’ items to consider that can give engineers the ability to see into the future and prevent catastrophic problems before they are created.  In addition, Mr. Easley highlights some solutions that have yielded benefits wildly beyond those anticipated by the designers. Attendees should leave this session with reasons to think before they implement their ‘perfect’ design.

Learning Objective:

After attending this presentation, attendees will have a new thought process that can be used in any type of engineering solution design.
