Project Definition

The Project Definition phase is the first step in the Breadware process. For projects that do not have a clear and full product specification, this phase is often the right place to start.


Feasibility Study

Review marketing research, similar products, user needs, timeline, and team to prepare a feasibility report to provide direction and technical strategy for the product development.

IoT Workshops

On-site brainstorming workshops and IoT training sessions lead by Breadware’s IoT system architecture designed to education, engage, and inform participants on the IoT product development journey.

Technical Architecture

Create a mechanical, electrical, firmware, cloud, mobile, and database architecture that best meets the market needs, usage factors, and constraints for the product.

Proof of Concept

Development of a rapid prototype, generally using off-the-shelf hardware and software, to shed light on key “gating” questions around technology, features, user interface, and unit cost.

Product Requirements Document

Create a preliminary product requirements document that clearly articulates the product look, feel, functions, and feature-set. This document becomes a blueprint to guide product development throughout the process.

A detailed Project Definition stage is essential for smooth development and a successful final product.

At the end of the Project Definition phase there will be a succinct product vision, a technical product architecture, at least one physical design concept, pricing estimates for production, and a detailed product development plan.
