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.
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.
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.
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 Product Definition stage is essential for smooth development and a successful final product.
