BACKGROUND

Fails to identify and formulate basic design needs.

Identifies basic design needs, yet identifies few, if any, resources that will influence the development of the solution.

Identifies design needs and identifies state of technology citing references from relevant literature, patents, and existing products.

Describes and analyzes design requirements while thoroughly analyzing relevant literature, patents and products.

 

DESIGN REQUIREMENTS

No design requirements defined.

Few design requirements defined, most are loosely defined, broader design considerations neglected

Defines important design requirements based on primary and secondary design objectives, addresses both technical and non-technical requirements and constraints.  Includes measurable requirements.

Defines comprehensive design requirements based on system requirements and constraints. Requirements are measurable.

 

IMPLEMENTATION OF DESIGN PROCESS

No design process implemented.

Vague process implemented for the design, little record of the process, and poorly defined criteria

Rational, documented process, measureable criteria for making design decisions

Quality and focused design process implemented, fully documented and clear qualitative and quantitative criteria for making design decisions.

 

PROJECT MANAGEMENT

Lacking any economic analysis or a defined timeline.

Vague estimates of product costs and/or the project timeline is loosely defined and lacks a clear understanding of time requirements for tasks, risks incomplete project.

Reasonable estimate of costs and considers potential market for design.  Timeline illustrates an understanding of individual task requirements, potential bottlenecks identified, reasonable potential for project success.

Reliable estimates of cost and a clear understanding of the financial feasibility of the design in today’s market.  Timeline is clearly defined and developed with rationale for task time requirements provided.  High probability of project completion.
