DesignProcess Week1

Design Process Week 1

Design Process Systematic problem solving with constraints and criteria used to develop many possible solutions to solve a problem or satisfy human needs and wants to narrow down the possible solutions to one final choice.
Problem Identification An unwelcome or harmful matter needing to be dealt with.
Constraint 1. A limit to the design process. Constraints are appearance, funding, space, material, ,and human capabilities.
Research/Brainstorming Study of materials and sources in order to get facts and reach conclusions. Group technique for generating ideas by participating in unrestrained discussion.
Solution One possible answer to a problem.
Assessment/Evaluate Analyze benefits and risks. Understand trade-offs. Test to see if the actual solution does not meet constraints or solve problem.
Interactive Process that repeats a series or loop of steps until a condition is satisfied. Design process steps may need to be repeated if a solution does not meet constraints or solve problem.
Design Brief A written plan that identifies the problem, its criteria, and its constraints. Used to encourage the designer/engineer to think of all aspects of a problem before attempting a solution.
