dc.description.abstract The premise for this research is that a standard of professional practice for design management will aid in the reduction of engineering failures. The data for this research was obtained from diverse group of peer reviewed journal articles, civil and forensic engineering authored books, and Travelers Indemnity Company. The structure of the dissertation is composed of a broad introduction followed by three journal articles: Article One "Inadequate Design Management Compared to Unprecedented Technical Issues: As a Cause for Engineering Failure," Article Two "Standards of Professional Practice for Design Management," and Article Three "Measuring the Responses and Attitudes for a Proposed Standards of Professional Practice for Design Management," and a broad conclusion. Each individual article provides a methodology for proving a need exists in the form of a standard to help reduce engineering failures resulting from inadequate management practices.
