TermDefinition
accuracy The extent to which a given measurement agrees with the standard value for that measurement.
annotation A note of explanation, a dimension, or a comment added to text, diagrams, or models.
cerebral palsy A condition that affects body movement and coordination. It is caused by brain injury or brain malformation that occurs before, during, or immediately after birth when an infant’s brain is still developing. (CP)
collaboration Working together on a common purpose.
constraint A limit or restriction to a design process. Constraints may be such things as appearance, funding, space, materials, and human capabilities.
criteria Rules or requirements that a design must follow.
decision matrix A tool for systematically ranking options using a set of criteria.
design process A systematic problem-solving strategy that designers follow to come up with a solution to a problem.
dial caliper A precision measuring device used to measure linear dimensions, thickness, or diameter.
dimension Measurement in length, width, and depth.
documentation A drawing, photo, video, or text artifact that contains information about a process or instructions for assembling, installing, operating, and servicing
isometric sketch A sketch in which an object’s parallel edges are drawn with parallel lines, typically at 30-degree angles to the horizontal baseline. There are no vanishing points and three sides of the object can be seen simultaneously.
mechanical dissection Observing the operation of a device and describing its function and design specifications.
modification A change or improvement designed to produce optimal accuracy and function.
multiview sketch A sketch showing 3 primary views of an object that are drawn using orthographic projections. The top, front, and right primary views of the object are projected onto a drawing plane perpendicular to each view.
observation A remark, statement, or comment based on something one has seen, heard, or noticed.
occupational therapy A treatment that focuses on helping people with a physical, sensory, or cognitive disability to improve function and be as independent as possible in all areas of their lives.
optimal Describes a design, process, or system that is as effective or functional as possible within the given criteria and constraints.
orthographic projection A method of representing views of a three-dimensional object by projecting the visible faces in each view on a two-dimensional plane.
perspective sketch A type of pictorial drawing in which vanishing points are used to provide the depth and distortion that is seen with the human eye.
precision The degree to which the correctness of a quantity is expressed.
prototype A working model used to test a design concept by making observations and necessary adjustments.
solution The answer to a problem or opportunity.
surface area The total area of the surface of a three-dimensional object.
team norms Guidelines that are developed by a team regarding how they are to interact, communicate, and conduct themselves as part of the team.
thumbnail sketch A preliminary visual of a possible idea for a design. Most thumbnail sketches are not full size and have little detail. Their purpose is to help quickly explore possible alternative designs. 1.2
unit A specified amount of something measured. Units allow us to use standard measurements.
volume The amount of space, measured in cubic units, that an object or substance fills.
