Some Initial Benchmarking

Functional Decomposition

To better understand what is necessary in the system. We created a chart for Functional Decomposition which breaks down the required actions into separate actions.

Concept Development (generation, improvement, selection)

We came up with ways to accomplish the functions and created a morph chart. Using these solutions we created concepts of systems. We then evaluated the concepts to help determine what our system should be comprised of. The evaluation showed concept A and D were better systems. The two systems had some points that were evaluated at the same value so to better differentiate and create a possible hybrid we did some engineering analysis in the form of benchmarking.

From this analysis we decided a hybrid of the two design concepts would be a better design.

Systems Architecture

This System Architecture shows how the system be configured.

This Controller Diagram shows the logic behind how the system will operate.

For example, basic engineering analysis or simulation, mockups, benchmarking results

There were a few differences that separated concepts A and D, so we did some benchmarking to determine which is a better solution.

Risk Assessment

We created a Failure Mode and Effects Analysis chart to help keep track of potential problems and how to solve them.
