Step 5. Reflect on the Results and the Process

The team looked at many different possibilites for the lighting system. Early on, the team realized it would be good to seperate the power and lighting modules. Thus, the team developed concepts for a power module and a lighting module independently. Each team member was asked to contribute in this process and be as creative as possible. Overall the team developed a good variety of feasible concepts.
