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

A Process happens in an organizational Context.
Context: The Project Leaves Blender

Objectives
* Remix / design and prototype a mid-size leaves blender.
* Evaluate its performance.
* Distribute a few prototypes to organizations local producers or through NGOs.

Description
A leaves blender is used to extract leaves concentrate, which can be of highly nutritional value.
Leaves concentrate is essentially a curd, made from leaves juice.

This process fulfills a Work order.
Order: Work order 318 due: 2021-05-16

This Process:

Work Package 4 - Deliverables - design starting 2021-03-30 ending 2021-05-16

Building understanding
Design
Total budget of 2,950$

Input requirements:

Time Contribution Work - Information mining 20.00 Time - Hours

Building understanding, budget of 700$

Map existing open source and DIY projects.
Study existing devices and talk to their creators and users.
Search literature for such devices.

WORK ETHIC REQUIREMENTS
# Work should be done transparently, allowing all project contributors to provide feedback and to contribute.
# Contributions without proper documentation are invalid.
# Documentation should be created progressively, during every work session, not at the end of a task.
# This task cannot be monopolized by any contributor, it is open to participation.
# Number of man-hours and budget are fixed. If more time is spent than planned and money to be paid surpasses the allocated budget, contributors involved in this task split the allocated budget in proportion to everyone's contribution.
# Contributions that do not reflect good work, that are inflated, or that are not properly documented can be redflagged by any contributor in this project, which can lead to the invalidation of the contribution. Repetitively misrepresenting work in logged contributions can lead to expulsion from project.

Documentation is done in the Design doc.

Diigo must be used for information mining, using the tag leaves_blender

Time Contribution Work - R&D mechanics 50.00 Time - Hours

Design, budget of 2,250$

DESIGN REQUIREMENTS
Easily replicable design with stock components and minimal use of custom parts (unless they can be digitally fabricated with a RepRap class 3-D printer or CNC mill –e.g. limit to what is found in most fab labs and avoid high energy processes and a skilled machinist). The designers should seek to minimize cost and complexity while keeping throughput high (continuous if possible).
