Engineering and design work always has an identifiable lifecycle, from the point at which someone recognises that design work is required, until the end of the designed asset life.
An engineering (design) lifecycle applies whether the design is new work (green-field) or modifications to an existing design (brown-field), and whether the design work is minor or major in scale.
This webinar will explore the engineering lifecycle, and explain the steps in the lifecycle and what is expected for each step. By gaining an understanding of this lifecycle, you'll be able to improve your design processes and communication with stakeholders in order to plan and deliver design work that meets user needs.
The engineering lifecycle presented will be generic (for training) and will not necessarily be the same as your organisation’s lifecycle. The intent is that you will gain an appreciation of general lifecycle phases and the key steps in the engineering lifecycle.
This webinar was recorded and is available to watch through Engineers Australia’s new online streaming platform, EA On Demand.
We can deliver this webinar exclusively to you and your organisation.

Mike Hurd is the founder of Engineering. Systems. Management. His 25 years' experience includes working with high-integrity systems such as nuclear plants, submarines, rail signalling and control, and electricity transmission and distribution networks.
A leader in safe design, Mike has developed processes, templates and training to improve systems and processes in engineering organisations. His teaching greatly benefits from his extensive experience applying safety in design and working with tools that promote safe outcomes.
In 2013 Mike founded the Engineers Australia's Engineered Safety Committee in South Australia. This committee brings together safety professionals to promote safety in the engineering lifecycle.
Excellent content. Well covered by Mike.
It's a great webinar. I found that the outlined project lifecycle and the main concern at every stage / step, especially for the design change control, really beneficial.
Very happy to see the Engineering and Design Lifecycle captured in a relatively detailed workflow. As someone who works primarily in detail design, it was great to see where we fit in the overall picture.
