Functional DecompositionOur Functional Decomposition proved to be exteremely useful as it allowed our group to narrow down our focus to a specific few desired improved functions, mainly dealing with the handling of the dough.
Concept DevelopmentOur initial Concept Tests can be found in the link provided. This document breaks down each concept we had and any initial testing we did along with it.
Using these concepts, we did a Concept Analysis to start to narrow down which concepts were actually feasible. After that process, we started to create System Concepts using the most feasible concepts.
Finally, we did a Pugh's Analysis to determine which system best meets the specifications.
Risk AssessmentThe team came up with an initial Risk Assessment, which is essentially a "brainstorm" of anything that can (and in some cases, probably will) go wrong during the course of the project. Each "Risk" was assigned a rating for Likelihood and Severity (on a scale from 1-3, with 3 being High). These two ratings were then multiplied together to get a value for Importance, which was used to look at the most serious risks to our project.
Systems Design ReviewJanuary 20th, 2012 @ 8:30am
This meeting was held at the Wegman's Bakery to choose a platform system level design and a derivative system level design. These design concepts are what will be detailed, tested and implemented as appropriate.
