The benefit of the integrated design process over the conventional design process is it capitalizes on the opportunity to develop a high quality comprehensive solution by placing a large percentage of effort in the schematic design phase; whereas, the conventional design process places the greatest effort in contract documents phase to coordinate a collection of piecemeal solutions.

Derici et al. [7] reported that stones have been implicated with appendicitis as a result of stones in the gall bladder. This in human health could lead to surgery with its economic implications. Water used for processing was obtained directly from the well and used without prior treatment. In a previous study by Fasoyiro et al. [6], some microorganisms found in water samples used in soy-cheese preparation, the coagulant and the soy-cheese samples were reported (Table 3). Poor unhygienic practices of the handlers is a major means of microbial contamination of the product through exposure of processing materials and products to dust and dirts apart from using untreated water.
