Part Design Process

Analogous inspiration: product teardowns

Define product requirements

Sketch and CAD

+

Tolerance analysis

Low fidelity prototyping:

Printing and building subassemblies

High fidelity prototyping:

Building full assemblies with volume manufacturing methods

Evaluate:

Performance and fit check

Testing Process

Define test requirements

(referencing standards and product requirements)

Procure equipment

and build test fixtures

Test

Evaluate results

Make design changes

(hardware and firmware)

Interface Design Process

Map the user's journey and define product requirements

Low fidelity prototyping:

Sketch and wireframe

+

User story flow

High fidelity prototyping:

Build prototypes with digital interfaces

User test and

synthesize findings

Make design changes
