Engineers should focus on integrated design, RMI says

06/12/2009 | GreenerBuildings

The Rocky Mountain Institute's Factor Ten Engineering program addresses efficient engineering design through a casebook illustrating integrated design. Some engineers create inefficient designs because they focus on individual components. Alok Pradhan from RMI said "current engineering practice is very siloed, and there's a lack of integration and whole-system consideration." The Institute's goal is to develop teaching tools to help engineers design using less energy and fewer resources.
