Well, obviously, the best answer to the posted question, is another question. That is, to call upon the person who asked, to define what they mean by all the terms. Engineering itself, requires that you set specifics, before the task is begun, otherwise it isn't engineering, it's just mucking about and trusting to luck.

One of the things we in the tech support world run into all the time, is projects where we can tell that the engineers were put in charge of the entire task, and problems resulted because they DID want to engineer everything. We end up with new products which would have been vastly better and much cheaper, had the engineers NOT insisted on designing an entirely new latch, or screw, or whatever in order to hold things together. There is such a thing as TOO MUCH engineering.
