Rob, at first I thought this would be stuff YOU learned in engineering school.  I was prepared to be amazed at your memoory (or imagination). 

As it is, there are some very good points made in the slide show.  I like the one about the roundabouts.  While living in the UK I got used to them and they are very good.  As applied here, not so much.  People are just not trained in how they work.

Slide 10 is something I am very knowledgeable about (for decades).  I did run into a book about UML for embedded systems where the author turns this on its head and talks about requirements defects having a big impact on development.  While this is true, it is easier to work with requirements and make changes than it is with code or silicon.

All in all, interesting stuff.
