Customer Requirements (Needs)

Customer requirements, including importance. You may also want to include links interview notes here. Have you sought input from all the relevant stakeholders? Have you confirmed this list of requirements with your customer? Are all your customer requirements being addressed by a measurable, testable engineering requirement or constraint?

Factors, usually system-level, that limit your design space (e.g., cost, total weight, total footprint, total power available). Are your constraints measurable and testable, and can they be traced back to customer requirements? Have you considered economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability constraints, for example?

Solution Parking Lot

During the Problem Definition phase, you will start coming up with possible solutions. Rather than act on those now, put them in the Solution Parking Lot, and come back to them after your team has fully defined the problem.
