Technical design reviews are used throughout industry to assess, question, improve and approve design.The review process is a frank exploration of the design efficacy. Designers are encouraged to keep anopen mind as their design is vetted sometimes in great detail. It is often an exercise in discovering whatmight have been overlooked or misunderstood or misapplied. These reviews are held at the conclusionof a design initiative or at various phases during the design sequence. The technical design review isoften used to ensure design safety but is also used to determine the veracity of design progress inmeeting customer, user or company goals and objectives. This paper reports on the use of the industrialstyle technical design review or its equivalent in the engineering capstone. The technical design reviewcan be used as an informative lecture topic or applied to the capstone project. Based on survey data,this paper reports on how, when and to what extent institutions use a technical design review. Sixty-seven respondents from academician provided input.
