Concept Design Sheet


The concept sheet is an important piece of documentation utilized during the design process that provides specific, succinct but detailed information on each of the concepts developed; this facilitates the organization of documenting the design process and allows for quick and reliable information transfer between the design team and the project sponsor/customer.

The concept sheet should contain an image of the concept in question such that operation principles are easily conveyed to the potential viewers of the specification report. Next, a brief but detailed description defining the operation principles of the concept should be included. Benchmarks should be specified so as to detail what the concept is designed to accomplish while, finally, a discussion section should be included to bring to light the so-called “Pros and Cons” of the concept. A generic layout of the concept sheet is provided below:
