Team Vision for System-Level Design Phase

For this phase, our team vision is to establish preliminary concepts for an overall system level design. End deliverables of this phase include documentation tracing the development of the bionic knee brace concept. Beginning with a functional decomposition and following through with benchmarking, concept creation and concept comparison we plan to determine a high-level approach that meets the needs of our customer requirements. Using this concept, we will continue in the next phase with specific subsystem designs and proof of various concepts to further determine the best solution to reducing user knee pain.
