The most highly engineered object ever built.

I was watching one of the science shows and they called the Cassini probe "the most highly engineered object ever built" which sounded like fanciful writing to me.

How would you even decide what to measure? Man-hours of engineering billed? Years in development? Innovations required?

Is there really more engineering required to build the Cassini than the Burj Dubai?

Does it even make sense to ask such a question as what is the most highly engineered object built to-date?
