Team Vision for System-Level Design Phase

The system design phase focused on determining the functionality of the system as well as a design for implementation. Benchmarking was utilized to formulate ideas that could be applied to our system. The designs generated were evaluated against the engineering requirements to ensure the system satisfies the necessary metrics. A feasibility analysis and risk analysis were performed to better understand the potential issues that could arise so a plan could be set in place to mitigate their occurrence. This phase will prepare the team for subsystem design and prototyping in the upcoming weeks.

Concept Development

Through use of the Morphological Chart, five concepts of varying levels were created to assist in the concept selection process.

Concept Selection

The concepts developed with the Morphological chart were compared through use of a Pugh Analysis. A datum was placed at the current state as well as the Smart Tech System solution. Each concept was scored against the datum to provide insight towards the best design solution.

Feasibility: Prototyping, Analysis, Simulation

The feasibility of the design will be tested through user trial and error. The team has begun creating prototypes of the various electronic purchasing forms for customer and stakeholder approval. Instruction manuals are included to highlight the initial system design.
