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).
Content linked here should go 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.
All template text must be removed from this page prior to your Week 3 Problem Definition Review
Team Vision for System-Level Design PhaseFor this design section:
- Visited the Montessori Academy to gather information and specifications
- Utilized the compost bin we have and the sifters to see the what kind of mesh size we will need for our system.
- Produced multiple design concepts that will have to be tested before we can build it.
- Boiled down to one main concept that follows customer and engineering requirements and will provide the best solution, so far.

Design Review MaterialsInclude links to:
- Presentation and/or handouts
- Notes from review
- Action Items
It is appropriate for you to send your customer and guide a link to this page in preparation for the review. This will ensure that they know what you will be presenting and how to view all of your work. Any EDGE link should start with http://edge.rit.edu/edge/P1xxxx..... Using "http" instead of "https" will ensure that non-RIT stakeholders can view the content without being prompted for a DCE login and password.
