Team Vision for System-Level Design Phase

During the systems design phase we planned to breakdown the functional requirements of the garment and then generate alternative components that could satisfy the functions. We also planned to go back to UR Medicine Golisano Children's Hospital and get more information on the current state solution and more information from the providers and the parents. Our end goal of this phase is to get to a single idea of what we believe this garment should be and then begin to collect feedback and look into feasibility of this idea.

During this phase we were able to converge to a single concept from the Pugh analysis as well as come up with a list of alternative designs. We were also able to go to UR Medicine Golisano Children's Hospital where we collected more information on the current state and learned more from the parents and the providers regarding their needs and expectations from the garment. We also developed an initial list of feasibility analysis to guide our project going forward.

Additionally, during this phase we created a Flyer to be hung around the NICU. The flyers are intended to increase parent and nurse awareness of the project.
