The following documents are the problem statement for the project, along with a one page summary outlining the inital analysis done on the project through this MSD coursework.
A use scenario was made for the educational application of this device, as the demo version would be simplified. This establishes the overall strategy for approaching the project deliverables.
An initial interview with our customer was completed on 9/5/13, with a follow-up interview on 9/6/13. The following documents show the results of both meetings.
An additional interview with our sponsor is scheduled for 10/2/13, at the Freescale Symposium. Updates on this meeting are still to come.
Based on feedback from our customer and collaborative work from the group, the following needs were established for this project.
Engineering Requirements and Project Constraints
Using our knowledge of the intended project goal, the following specifications and constraints were established.
House of Quality
In order to some of the trends between customer requirements, engineering requirements, and benchmarking examples, the following House of Quality was completed by our group.
Based on the use of this tool, the following trends were established.
From this mapping, the following design drivers and critical design challenges were identified for this project.
The House of Quality was updated with new requirements and constraints, but the top mapping was not done as it did not add value.
