Book Description :

For courses in creativity and innovation for engineers. Emphasizing the Importance of Innovation and Creativity for Engineers This first edition of Introduction to Creativity and Innovation for Engineers was primarily designed for engineering students interested in acquiring knowledge, skills, and attitudes (KSA) that will help them be more creative and innovative. While intended primarily for engineering students, the widely applicable principles, ideas, tools, and methods introduced will also be useful for practicing engineers and as well as members of other disciplines. The text argues for a "whole-brain" approach to the study of engineering, using neuroscience as a foundation. While the left brain (logical and analytic) is essential to the study of engineering, the author believes that engineering students and practitioners will be more successful if they learn to also engage in more right brain processing (intuitive and emotional). Similarly, they should draw on knowledge of conscious and subconscious thinking and view the brain as a muscle that can be continuously strengthened. Building on that "Neuroscience 101" foundation, the text prepares future and current engineers to work smarter--either as individuals or within teams and organizations--by generating and developing new ideas. The nine chapter structure uses clear objectives, many examples, and numerous exercises to explicate its methods, ultimately enabling students and practitioners to realize that they're already capable of creative - innovative thinking. They only need to apply the 20 methods described in the book to unlock their brain's natural capabilities and then produce creative-innovative results for their benefit and for the benefit of others.

Book Description :

The Creative Engineering Design Assessment or CEDA is a newly developed tool to assess creativity specific to engineering design which is vital for innovation. The revised CEDA assesses usefulness in addition to originality. Both originality and usefulness are key constructs in creativity but are primarily essential and emphasized ever more in engineering design. Since the preliminary research was presented to the National Science Foundation, further reliability and validity has been developed and established. The CEDA is different from other general creativity measures as it demonstrates discriminant validity with the Creative Personality Scale, Creative Temperament Scale, and the Cognitive Risk Tolerance Scale, and has demonstrated convergent validity with the Purdue Creativity Test and the Purdue Spatial Visualization Test- Rotations. It focuses on engineering specific measures, measuring engineering creativity and spatial skills. The aim of this book is to disseminate the CEDA tool for use in engineering educational programs, industry, NASA and the military. Creative Engineering Design Assessment (CEDA) Background, Directions, Manual, Scoring Guide and Uses discusses and outlines the need for creativity in our global economy and in engineering design and provides the CEDA tool in effort to achieve this.

Book Description :

Few studies have focused on perceptions of creativity in engineering. Previous researchers have tended to focus on perceptions concerning the degree to which creative thinking is emphasized in the classroom, rather than on whether students value creativity as an important part of the engineering design process. Moreover, the relationship between students' perceptions of the importance of creative thinking in engineering design and their creative performance has not been investigated. Given the value placed on the ability of an engineer to think creatively, it is important to understand how engineering students perceive creativity as it relates to the engineering design process and whether such perceptions have the potential to influence their ability to think creatively during the engineering design process. In this mixed-methods study, perceptions related to four primary themes: students' perceptions of (a) the definition of creativity with respect to engineering design, (b) the importance of creativity during engineering design, (c) the extent to which creativity was developed throughout the engineering program, and (d) their own creative abilities. Themes were compared among eight engineering students who scored at the extreme ends of the Creative Engineering Design Assessment (CEDA). In addition, perceptions were gathered from 12 mechanical engineering faculty in order to compare their perceptions of creativity in the mechanical engineering program to those of the students. The findings of this study support predictions made by applying the expectancy-value theory, which holds that students who value creativity in engineering design and confidently believe they have the ability to be creative are more likely to be creative in various engineering design scenarios. Further, all students interviewed shared the perception that the mechanical engineering program did little to encourage and develop creative-thinking skills; however, students agreed the program developed the foundational knowledge necessary for creative thought. These findings may be useful for engineering educators as well as for guiding future researchers in the areas of engineering education and engineering creativity.

Book Description :

Creative Design Engineering: Introduction to an Interdisciplinary Approach presents the latest information on a field that has traditionally been primarily concerned with how to make things. However, as technology has advanced, and we have no shortage of things, a new challenge for today’s engineers is what to make. In tackling this, our approaches to engineering design have come under the spotlight. This book presents solutions to this topic in different sections that highlight the basic concerns associated with innovation. First, design is considered a kind of universal human act. Second, it is an interdisciplinary approach that brings together perspectives from fields such as cognitive science and science of knowledge is adopted. Third, the scope of the discussion also includes the process of creating an initial idea for a new product (called the pre-design phase), as well as the use of the product in society (the post-design phase). Design engineers and researchers in engineering design will find this a user-friendly route to understanding the importance of creativity to engineering and how to implement new techniques to improve design outcomes. The book has been translated from the original Japanese book titled Sozo Dezain Kogaku [Creative Design Engineering] (published by the University of Tokyo Press 2014). Draws on research in industrial design, art, and cognitive science to present a concept of creativity which breaks free of traditional engineering thinking Deconstructs design as a human activity to increase our understanding, helping us create outstanding engineering projects and systems Includes discussion points to help the reader not only explore the concepts in the book, but also apply them to their own design contexts

Book Description :

Most people see the world of engineering as a discipline consisting solely of physics and math that offers very little room for creativity. The Creative Engineer explores the missing element in engineering: a focus on creativity. The importance of creativity in STEM fields and the ability to think and design with artistic innovation is a vital skill to be taught and practiced within engineering and manufacturing disciplines in order to stop hindering us from expansive progress. With extensive access to information today, we have the ability to think outside of the box, take risks, learn from our surroundings, and become more inventive and solution-driven than ever before. However, we have to understand math and science are not the only pillars upon which engineering and design should be based. In The Creative Engineer, Yang shares stories of individuals from around the world looking to nature and unconventional influences for inspiration in design. In doing so, we read the effects of freedom on the confines of science and math in traditional classrooms. People such as Elon Musk, Steve Jobs, and Burt Rutan have taken the world by storm as creative individuals whose work and mindset can be expanded to the engineering world.

Book Description :

Invention and innovation lie at the heart of problem solving in virtually every discipline, but they are not easy to come by. Divine inspiration aside, historically we have depended primarily on observation, brainstorming, and trial-and-error methods to develop the innovations that provide solutions. But these methods are neither efficient nor dependable enough for the high-quality, high-tech engineering solutions we need today. TRIZ is a unique and powerful, algorithmic approach to problem solving that demonstrated remarkable effectiveness in its native Russia, and whose popularity has now spread to organizations such as Ford, NASA, Motorola, Unisys, and Rockwell International. Until now, however, no comprehensive, comprehensible treatment, suitable for self-study or as a textbook, has been available in English. Engineering of Creativity provides a valuable opportunity to learn and apply the concepts and techniques of TRIZ to complex engineering problems. The author-a world-renowned TRIZ expert-covers every aspect of TRIZ, from the basic concepts to the latest research and developments. He provides step-by-step guidelines, case studies from a variety of engineering disciplines, and first-hand experience in using the methodology. Application of TRIZ can bring high-quality-even breakthrough-conceptual solutions and help remove technical obstacles. Mastering the contents of Engineering of Creativity will bring your career and your company a remarkable advantage: the ability to formulate the best possible solutions for technical systems problems and predict future developments.

Book Description :

The economic growth and strength of a nation are directly related to the ability of its people to make discoveries and their ability to transform these discoveries into useful products. Ninety percent of the increase in output per capita in the United States from 1909 to 1949 has been held to be attributable to technological advances. In this book, we examine the ways in which a number of important new technologies came into being and review the characteristic traits of inventors who create new technologies. Ways are suggested that could enable young and old alike to become more creative, and the various benefits they can thereby reap are also discussed. A high level of creativity is an important asset for a nation, and therefore a knowledge of ways to increase inventiveness can be of great value. University of Cincinnati President Warren Bennis has noted that "creativity is something most of us seem to lose, or let atrophy, as we leave childhood."· To "rediscover it," he continues, "we must find ways of re-creating our sense of wondering why, of heightening, even altering, our consciousness." Thus the earlier in life one seeks to enhance his creativity, the more successful the results are likely to be.
