A Process takes inputs and transforms them into outputs, and may be connected to other Processes in process flows. The work of Work - Meeting contributes to This Process.

A Process happens in an organizational Context.
Context: The Project Spider rig

Create a spider rig

This process is connected to other processes to fulfill a Work order.
Order: Work order 278 for Deliver the Spider Rig due: 2018-09-11

This Process:

Milestone 2 - Design considerations to Deliver the Spider Rig starting 2018-09-03 ending 2018-09-10

NOTE: you need to create specific design processes here (Design electronic, mechanical, optical or other)

This is a high-level design effort to take into consideration a few important elements. Note that these elements maintain important relations and they cannot be considered on an individual basis.
* Ecosystem: A reflection about standards to be used, based on a map of the ecosystem this product will be part of. The goal is interoperability.
* Lifecycle: A reflection about how this product will be used and who it will end its life. Is it modular and used in conjunction with other things (see System)? Is it a "perpetual product" (i.e. the user is able repair and to update/upgrade it) and if so, how easy it is to be updated/upgraded? Will it be possible to recycle parts of the product to be used in other applications once the product becomes obsolete? Is it recyclable? Is this product meant to be shared by a group of individuals during its lifetime?
* Business model: A reflection about how the product is generating value for the community that designs and supports it. Is the value capturing mechanism based on service? Is this a product that is owned or rented? Is the product serviced on site or remotely? Is this product labeled as a sustainable product (local, ethical, environmentally friendly).
* Manufacturing: A reflection about supply chain and fabrication. What are the optical supply chain and parts in order to reduce cost and environmental impact. What the best fabrication technology/method? How important is quality?
* System: a reflection about how the thing will be put together.
* Environment: A reflection the environment in which the product will evolve
* User effects: a reflection about how the product is handled by the user and how the user can affect the integrity of the product

INPUT: idea
OUTPUT: Design considerations - a file

Desired design characteristics
* Shareable (the sharing economy)
* Modular (perpetual products and customizable) - see this link about a specific effort to define a standard for scientific parts.
* Interoperable (standards)
* Socializable (offer value through social interactions and communities)
* Sustainable

See product design philosophy doc

We should always tink larger than the project. There are different dimensions that we can identify.

! Synergy with other SENSORICA projects
! Spinoffs (modules that can take a life of their own)
! Parallel opportunities
! Network building - cohesion, activity level, energy...
! Network of network consolidation - build bridges with other networks
! ...

Input requirements:

Time Contribution Work - General product design 20.00 Time - Hours

This is a holistic approach for design. the output is a document describing design characteristics that take into consideration the output of the Design consideration stage.
The actual design work will be done in the next stage.
