ABSTRACT
Engineering designs involve the use of science, technology, intuition and information to achieve transformation of concept into reality in pursuant of specific objectives. An inherent problem is that errors made in the design will affect the quality and performance of any system since reliability of a system is affected at every stage in its production. Data for this study was obtained by direct interview, use of questionnaire and review of samples. This paper showed the importance of review of design at early stages to uncover possible faults, reduce risks of flaws, thereby ensuring that it meets the durability requirement in a safe, functional and cost effective manner. Significantly 94% of examined designs had one or more flaws, while about 33% of designers were unaware of the need for the design review.
