The purpose of this document is to outline the engineering design and production development process for a safety step to be used in pre-schools. The team began by establishing customer need and moved through the design and prototyping phases. Once a design was selected, the team focused on developing a production process for the product. The project culminated in two one-hour long production runs in which the team carried out the production process to fill a customer order. The results of the first run indicated that adjustments needed to be made to the process, as the required number of pieces was not produced in the one-hour period. In the second run, the takt time was met with one piece being produced every 4 minutes and 48 seconds.
