Product Design Specification

Product Design Specification
Having carried out some extensive market research you have come to some decisions about the current requirements for your product and the direction of its future development. For the benefit of all involved in the design and manufacturing process you have decided to produce a detailed Product Design Specification (PDS).

Guidance notes

A PDS specifies what is to be designed rather than how the design will be implemented so it is usually drawn up before design commences. (Before the product exists)

Learning Outcomes

Following this PBL cycle you should be able to:

? Draw up a Product Design Specification for an electronic product
? Discuss the benefits of using a PDS.
