Lesson Learned

Engineering errors are a priceless source to prevent similar faults if they are shared among and used by engineers. Some of them led to large damages and even disasters. Obviously any measures to eliminate those bad experiences should be beneficial to our whole community. Lesson learned benefits all involved sectors of a project in the following way:

  • Knowledge improvement

  • Team efficiency improvement

  • Cost reduction

  • Design consistency

Regarding to the Canadian law, engineers are accountable for their design. Each lesson learned comes from an experience which has been incorporated in some certain conditions. So it is engineers’ responsibility to ensure that using a previous experience provides them with enough safety margins. We are trying to build a platform enabling engineers to share their lessen learned. A mechanism to gather and present users’ experience will be introduced soon.
