Detailed Design Phase

Goal is to design working prototype which meets functional specifications.

Common tasks

  • Design/analysis/evaluation of project, sub-modules and/or components (freeze interfaces)
  • Complete DFMEA analysis of project
  • Prototyping of project, sub-modules and/or components
  • Field test prototype/usability testing


4.2 Field Testing
4.3 User’s Manual
4.4 Materials List
4.5 Demonstration with Stakeholders
4.6 Safety Analysis
4.7 Peer Evaluation
4.8 Gate

Gate 4: Continue if can demonstrate feasibility of solution (is there a working prototype?). Project Partner and advisor approval required.
