Abstract : Imagine yourself as a member of an engineering design team in St. Louis. Your team has been working on a new, improved artificial heart that shows great promise for ultra incorporating the feedback from your collaborating heart surgeon to make the device easier to install. As the team sits in its design room, passing the artificial heart around, one member asks to review the specifications on the valves from the supplier in Los Angeles. You call him on the phone and moments later he walks into the room and answers the question. Satisfied with your team's latest efforts, you tell the surgeon in New York that you are ready for a test. Your team walks into his laboratory, carrying the heart, and hand it to him. The surgeon places the heart on a tray beside an operating table on which is laying a cadaver. Some of your team still has trouble being squeamish as he slices open the cadaver, removes the old heart, and quickly and easily installs the artificial one.
