Investigate Stage

Design Brief, Design Specification and Product test plan

Here come to the last part of the investigate stage, you are required to make a design brief, design specification and product test plan.

Design Brief is presented when a problem has been identified and discussed in detail in research. The brief is a short statement of intent.

Design specification is likely to show
1) what types of materials are preferred,
2) the function of the product,
3) Maximum or minimum dimensions,
4) general shape and form of the product,
5)special considerations or constraints required by the customer.

Product test plan is a plan to describe how the product are tested against the design specifications.

For the details of the design brief, design specification and product test plan, please refer to .

You should finish the design brief, design specification and product test plan in iBook author and submit to Ms. Cheung on 10/1/2013.

Besides, you need to submit all your work in iBook author format. Therefore, you need to install the iBook author in your MacBook and create a iBook author file for Textile Technology.
