From the Editor

Larry J. Shuman

Senior Associate Dean University of Pittsburgh

This special issue focuses on Product Dissection.  Guest editor Ann McKenna, together with Gül E. Okudan Kremer and Deborah Moore-Russo, have assembled a series of papers that provide a comprehensive view of this important area, especially as an increasing number of engineering programs are addressing how best to teach innovation and product realization.  The issue contains seven papers addressing issues from introductory first-year projects to senior capstone design.  Examples are presented of both short and longer term activities.  Of particular note is the use of product archaeology to address ABET Outcome h – “the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context.”
