CDEN (the Canadian Design Engineering Network) lasted about 10 years. These are some of the documents generated during that time.
The eventual outcome of CDEN was a series of “teaching modules” for first-year engineering students, and intended to give them the fundamentals needed to learn the fundamentals of engineering design (with an emphasis on mechanical engineering, from which most CDEN module authors came).
They remain available today at the product development process modules page.
