Hi all,

So I am in an intro to design and ethics class and we are creating a theoretical design project. Basically just going through the 10 steps, but actually coming up with ideas, doing research, and conceptually creating some alternative solutions (the project takes the whole semester basically).

Now I am sitting at Analysis and I am a tad stuck as we need to utilize a mathematical equation to determine performance or something of the like. Also, we need to develop a bill of materials. My project is the digital pill box with the problem of enhancing medication adherence and ultimately increasing population health.

3. The attempt at a solution

We came up with some great looking alternative solutions but I am not sure how to find equations or a bill of materials for these theoretical parts and processes. I have google searched high and low but most companies don't really reveal the production cost of their products...

So I am not sure really where to go on this one and am open to any suggestions. Just a point in the right direction would help greatly!

Thanks,

Chuck
