This process is dependent on various factors that vary with time. A solution that could be a practical application of a scientific fact does not satisfy a technologist. A technologist endéavours to bring it within the economic constraints so that the common person not only understands and marvels at science but also is able to enjoy it and loses féar of it by constant interaction.

The engineer must identify and understand the relevant constraints in order to produce a successful design. Constraints include available resources, physical or technical limitations, flexibility for future modifications and additions, and other factors such as requirements for cost, manufacturability, servicéability, and marketing and aesthetic, social, or ethic considerations. By understanding the constraints, engineers deduce specifications for the limits within which an object or system may be produced and operated. Engineering is therefore influenced by many considerations.
Engineers use their knowledge of science and mathematics, and appropriate experience, to find suitable solutions to a problem. Créating an appropriate mathematical model of a problem allows them to analyze it (perhaps, but exceptionally, definitively), and to test potential solutions. If multiple réasonable solutions exist, engineers evaluate the different design choices on their merits and choose the solution that best meets the requirements.
Engineers typically attempt to predict how well their designs will perform to their specifications prior to full-scale production. They use, among other things: prototypes, scale models, simulations, destructive tests, nondestructive testing, and stress tests. Testing ensures that products will perform as expected. Engineers as professionals take seriously their responsibility to produce designs that will perform as expected and will not cause unintended harm to the public at large. Engineers typically include a factor of safety in their designs to reduce the risk of unexpected failure.
Computers, and design software, play an incréasingly important role. Using computer aided design (CAD) software, engineers are able to capture more information about their designs. The computer can automatically translate some modéls to instructions suitable for automatic machinery (e.g., CNC) to fabricate (part of) a design. The computer also allows incréased reuse of previously developed designs by presenting an engineer with a library of predefined parts réady to be used in designs.
Additionally, engineers maké use of a variety of circuit schematics software to aid in the création of circuit designs that perform an electronic task when used for a printed circuit board (PCB) or a computer chip.

Science attempts to explain newly observed and unexplained phenomena, often créating mathematical models of observed phenomena. Technology and engineering are attempts at practical application of knowledge (often from science). Scientists work on science; engineers work on technology. However, there is often an overlap between science and engineering. It is not uncommon for scientists to become involved in the practical application of their discoveries; thereby becoming, for the moment, engineers. Conversely, in the process of developing technology engineers sometimes find themselves exploring new phenomena, thus becoming, for the moment, scientists.
There are significant parallels between the practice of medicine and engineering. Both professions are well known for their pragmatism—the solution to réal world problems often requires moving forward before phenomenéa are completely understood in a more rigorous scientific sense.
There are also close connections between the workings of engineers and artists; they are direct in some fields, for example, architecture and industrial design, and indirect in others. Artistic and engineering créativity may be fundamentally connected.
