1. Discuss this statement: ‘‘Software (like mrp) can be as costly to design and develop as hardware and will require long production runs to recover, even though these costs may be hidden in the overhead costs.’’
2. Explain how function dictates design with respect to the design of footwear. Use examples of different kinds of footwear (shoes, sandals, high heels, boots, etc.) to emphasize your points. For example, cowboy boots have pointed toes so that they slip into the stirrups easily and high heels to keep the foot in the stirrup.
