Concept Development: Morphological Chart


Concept Selection: Pugh Charts



Concept Selection: Designs

We have omitted our potential concept sketches here as our final concept is sensitive information. For those with appropriate permissions, our sketches and more information can be found here.

Feasibility: Prototyping, Analysis, Simulation

Some information has also been omitted from this section. Those with appropriate permissions can view the fully disclosed page here.

Preliminary Testing Feasibility Analysis

Future Analysis

Future Testing/Prototyping

Risk Assessment

We have hidden our design risks as they disclose information we wish to protect at this time. Those with the proper permissions may find the information here.

Design Review Materials

Because our project review powerpoints contain sensitive info, we have opted to not include them on this page. For those with proper credentials, they can be found here.
