Clarify the Problem

A brainstorm on problems that need solving

Step 2. Search Externally

Search and Explore Systematically

Search and Explore Systematically

Doing searches for relvant patents and products we found the following: Shadowrobot.com has robotic arms made that use pnematic muscles to move.

Vandorendesign.com made a robotic arm controlled by motors. They also have very nice solid works models on the wrist page.

A paper called "Anthropomorphic hand control for robotic hand-arm system" on the IEEE database.

Step 3. Search Internally

A brain storm was done for all term related to the problems at hand.

Step 4. Explore Systematically

We grouped the items

Step 5. Reflect on the Results and the Process

Upon completion of this exercise, it was noticed that the eight sub-groups could be further combined into three major overall groups. These groups are Management, Mechanical Systems and Control Systems. This makes intuitive sense with what past teams have experienced.
