Systems Design

Table of Contents

Your website should document your journey through MSD, so include work-in-progress as well as latest results. Use pdf's for display whenever possible so that information is easily viewable without the need to download files and open applications. (Your EDGE file repository should still contain original editable files).

Sample categories are listed below, but feel free to delete, change, or add nodes and files to better correspond to your project and your Guide’s expectations.

You may want to consider putting files you link to here in the Systems Level Design Documents directory. This directory is pre-populated with a variety of templates that are designed to help you through this phase of the design.

For example, basic engineering analysis or simulation, mockups, and benchmarking results that demonstrate that your proposed design is realistic. Are you violating the laws of physics? Can it be manufactured? Are you on track to satisfy requirements?
