Sheet 5 (Design Realisation)

This chapter focuses on developing the final design. The next steps are to decide on which of the three design ideas (from sheets 2, 3 and 4) to take forward, then develop the ideas further and add details to create a design realisation sheet. This sheet needs to include enough details to allow someone to understand the needs of the products and include enough information to judge that a tool (when built) fulfils the goals of the design. We lead the reader through ways to make precise thoughts over each of the designs and provide examples of the whole process.
