Malaysia is moving forward towards the effective implementation of outcome based education (OBE) system. As one of the steps for the enhancement of Malaysian knowledge to initiate and design new technology and product, implementation of systematic and innovative tools and methods through OBE system in the stage of structuring and managing engineering design education among institute of higher learning (IHL) is very much essential. In this study, our aim is to develop systematic teaching tools for the structuring, managing, monitoring, assessing and analyzing the engineering design education towards the effectiveness of OBE system using user friendly software. Systematic teaching scheduling was created to reflect the actual practice in industry for the benefit of both lecturers and students. Structural weightage index was formulated and utilized in organizing and preparing the overall lecture plan to ensure appropriateness of the lecture content and finally lead to the improvement of the teaching and learning activities. Using the index, suitable number of sub-chapter was identified and this has led to the optimum usage of lecture time. It was also observed that the overall student performance was increased in accordance with the utilization of the proposed tools.
