Design: Developing Ideas
After a designer has thoroughly understood a problem, we develop success criteria. The success criteria clearly explains what your solution MUST HAVE. For example some students designed a program to help manage homework. The list below is example of some of their success criteria:
- Make an option to add assignments
- Make an option to delete assignments
- Make an option to edit assignments
- Create option for submitting due date
- Create option to change due date
- Create option for no due date
- Create notifications for upcoming assignments
This means when you are done building a solution, it must have the criteria above. Without the criteria above, you have not met the design goals.
When we develop ideas:
- We can develop detailed design specifications, which explain the success criteria for the design of a solution based on the analysis of the research
- We can develop a range of feasible design ideas, using an appropriate medium(s) and detailed annotation, which can be correctly interpreted by others
- We can present the chosen design and justifies fully and critically its selection with detailed reference to the design specification
- We can develop accurate and detailed planning drawings/diagrams and outlines requirements for the creation of the chosen solution.
