When a fortified city or large fortress had to be taken by siege. It was the engineer who devised the plan of what and how many guns were to be used, how many parallels to be dug, where the saps (Trenches) were to be started, and hoe deep to make them. Inside the fortification, engineer's were set about studying how to defeat the outside plans and strengthen the city's defenses. This is a simplified plan of how a siege would be worked out.
