Hey guys, Best wishes to everyone. Hopefully this is the right place to post a question about electronics designing. I've searched the forum with query Documentation design, couldn't find anything, feel free to suggest different keywords, anyways, onto my question
I have just got my first engineering job and I am tasked with designing an electronic device for a firm. I am not as smart as a lot of you guys and definitely not as experienced in designing as I would like to be. I have been writing a document to describe the device I need to make for the company and I'm having a hard time coming up with things that should go in it. So far I have the following sections and what they contain.
Title Page - Doc name, Author, Doc Rev.#, Proprietary Statement
Document Description - What the purpose of this document is ("to document the design of the product I'm developing")
Product Description - What the product does
Level 1 System Level Requirements - Cost, Size, Devolopment time
Level 1 Subsystem Requirements
Power - 2 hour operating time, battery powered, on off switch
Command and Data - must acquire and record data, etc
Structure - impact resistant, small, lightweight, plastic housing, etc
Sensory - frequency of sensors, filtering
What am I forgetting? What other sections do you guys put in your documents that are similar to mine. The list above is greatly abridged. I want to be an awesome engineer one day please help me, I've already written about 5 pages but I feel like it is really lacking stuff, I can't think what though. Any input into how I should document my design would be much appreciated. Unfortunately I must write this post with a little ambiguity, I'm under contract to not disclose stuff.
