3 The Senior Design Process The SDP is broken up into four 3-to-4-week iterations beginning with the Architectural Spike. The goal of this iteration is to develop an as complete as possible version of the final product. The SDP is broken up into four 3-to-4-week iterations beginning with the Architectural Spike.

18 Development Deliverables – User Stories User Story Example; User Story Example; Name: Off-Screen Ghost Markers Summary: A marker system to indicate to the user the location and velocity of any ghosts that do not fit on the screen Description: The phone screen is much smaller than the arcade game screen. To preserve the character of the original game, the large playing area is needed, which means only a fraction can be displayed at any time. The player must have some awareness of where each ghost is on the playfield as well as whether the ghost is in “kill” or “run away” mode. The screen real estate available to the application should not decrease as result of the marker system. [and more, omitted in interest of brevity]

20 Development Deliverables – Design Documentation The design document tells how your product works, what decisions you made, why you made them. It should give a follow-on team or a new team member who comes in mid-cycle what they need to know to start working on the project.
