Criteria A: We have to create a design brief that solves our problem based on the analysis of the research also conducted in this stage. The research will have a constructed plan, which will state and prioritise primary and secondary research needed to develop a solution for the problem. The research would all so analyse existing products that would inspire our solution to our problem.
I think that this criteria would be the most time needed out of all which will be a challenge, especially organising and analysing researched conducted.
Criteria B: We would have to create a design specification that explains the success of the solution based on the analysis of the research. We would also have to develop a range of feasible design ideas that can be easily interpreted by others and one design must be chosen for the solution and justified using the design specification. We would have to create a plan for the design with drawings/diagrams and outline the requirements needed for the creation of it.
The challenge in this criteria would be the same challenge I had last year which is developing a range of different ideas because when I already have an idea for a design, it’s hard to think of a design that is completely different to what I had in mind.
Criteria C: The first part of this criteria is to develop a logical plan to create the solution which describes efficient use of time and resources. Then we would have to create our solution, following our plan and demonstrating our technical skills. We would also have to justify any changes made to the design and/or plan if there are any.
I think that the challenge in criteria C is to create the solution by following the plan because last year it was hard since my plan wasn’t very feasible and I had to cram everything to the last minute.
Criteria D: We would have to design a product test and evaluate out solution against it and the design specification. We also have to explain how the solution can be improved and what kind of impact it could have on the client/target audience.
I think that it is better that we create the product test in criteria D because it was hard to create a test last year when we didn’t know much about what we were actually going to create. The challenge would be to create a test that wouldn’t be just rephrasing the design specifications.
