Benchmarking: Benchmark existing solutions that meet the customer’s need. Be specific (e.g., give us data, specs, on what’s already there).

Your name, your class section (instructor name + class meeting time), and your team’s name 2. A brief description of the transportation issue your team is addressing in your EGR 102 project (a sentence or two is OK for this) 3. A brief description of your team’s target user group. Who are you designing the solution for? (a sentence or two is OK for this). 4. A description of at least five solutions available for purchase that address some aspect of the transportation issue you described for part 2. For each of the five items , give the following: a. A description of the item (including a photo if possible). b. What aspect of your team’s chosen transportation issue does the solution address? c. How much does the solution cost? Where can it be purchased? d. Who is the target user of the product? e. What is it made out of? f. What is the (can be approximate) size of the item? g. Stated limitations of the item’s use (if there are any) – e.g., temperature or weight restrictions. h. At least one other relevant piece of information about the item (e.g., what size is it? how was it manufactured? what are the safety issues associated with it? has there been testing done on the product? ) i. The source(s) of your information (URL(s), for example) 5. A statement about what is missing from the products you identified products that your team’s solution can address.
