  • This is a new project that we are working on.
  • This means that we are not soley focused on a technological advancement. Some students through an in depth needs assessment discover other areas of improvement that are not technology focused but more on a process.
  • In the design world we have an approach that helps with this process of framing the problem and developing solutions that combine the functional with the science and business. It is called Human Centered Design or HCD. It frames problems in a way that always keep the needs of the human in the center while looking for the optimum across this different areas.
  • With this approach designers then can understand the context of the views who and place that they are used. It is also generative in that it creates new insights and opportunities but stepping back and looking at the overall framing issue and asking the question of where do need a view and how wide and even asking the tough question of do we need anything at all.
