DESIGN SPECIFICATION EXERCISE

V. Ryan 2005

 

Read the specification statements below - write your own version for each of the statements, in the available spaces.

   

1. The materials I will use will be compressed polystyrene, pine and MDF because my research clearly shows that this combination will improve my solution.

 
 
 
 

2. The overall shape will depend on the ergonomics of the hand. I will base the dimensions on statistics worked out as part of my research.

4. The solution will have the following functions: (List exactly what the solution will do).

6. I will need the following tools/machines to manufacture my solution: a lathe, drilling machine, hand files, a vacuum former etc......

 
 
 
 

7. The solution is aimed at the 5 to 8 age group as my research suggests this would be the most successful market.

 
 
 
 

8. I intend to use a PIC-Microcontroller as this can be programmed to carry out a number of tasks.

 
 
 
 
9. The project will be powered by a 9 volt battery so that it is electrically safe, as found in my research.
 
 
 
 
10. The device will be based on a theme that young children find interesting and amusing.
