The title block for some of our clients includes a box for "Lead" or "Lead Engineer." In some instances, the Lead or Lead Engineer is not the same as the Engineer of Record (the one stamping the drawings). The EOR is in responsible charge of the drawings, of course, but the Lead is the person who is handling the project as a whole, including administrative stuff, schedule, budget, etc.--this does not even have to be an engineer, it can be an architect or designer. In this scenario, we put the project lead's initials in the "Lead" box, and the EOR stamps the drawing as usual. However, a fellow engineer believes that the EOR's initials should always be in the "Lead" box. Does anyone have an opinion on this?
Thanks in advance.

Simulation is an increasingly valuable tool across the product design workflow, but not all simulations are equal. We set out to determine how engineers and product designers make use of specialized analyses, how they incorporate nonlinear simulation into their work and how they rate the available software.
