I want to ask the following question but I am not sure whether or not it would qualify as a valid question:
What role do system engineers play in the design and implementation of a pace-maker? It would be greatly appreciated if you back up your answers with actual references and/or experiences.
I reviewed the rules for Engineering Stack Exchange and it seemed that this type of questions can be treated as "subjective" questions.
I felt according to the guidelines of "good" subjective questions that this question could qualify as a "decent" subjective question.
This question would naturally require the answerer to present "long and not short answers". It asks for "sharing experiences over opinions". I have insisted that their "opinions should be backed with facts and references".
I THINK the tone of this question is "constructive, fair, and impartial".
I do believe this question is MORE THAN "mindless social fun". It is helpful for people who want to learn the design flow for industry-level applications. It will inform the questioner and the readers about the roles of various/specific fields in the design of such applications. This will hopefully inform them about the practicality and relevance of certain/specific career paths in the industry.
Could I ask this question on Engineering Stack Exchange?
