As you already know, Comfort4U is working diligently to design a chair that is suitable to the needs we have as people, but that is also beneficial economically and functionally to its market audience. For the past few weeks, our team has been enthusiastically researching, collecting opinions, and brainstorming the secret behind the “ideal” chair. As it’s been said in previous reports we have interviewed potential customers in order to get an unbiased perspective of what comfort means. We’ve also come together as a team and conferenced with one another about the possible health disturbances caused by inadequate chairs. The purpose behind this project is so that we can provide the public with an option that is able to meet their comfort requirements while maintaining its portable function. In order to do so, we have to come up with a document called a Memorandum. A memorandum is a write up that summarizes our goal as a company and the research and plans we have in mind for our product. And that is what we have been focusing on throughout the week.

In order to put together this document, we had to scrounge through prior research, patents and prior art, historical references, and market statistics. We were able to gather patent information like the Body-Supporting Device derived from United States Patents, and customer interview responses from teachers like Ms. Jo, and students like Carina Corrasco. All of these aspects have added to the depth and aesthetic of our memorandum. The creators of Star.Path.Design gave us regulations and guidelines to be met while writing the memorandum. We were instructed to write an introduction, an overview of our projects and goals, a background, and market information about our product. We were also given a memorandum sample, that we used as a helpful tool to format and give us a main idea of what was expected of us. Through those resources we were able to successfully draft our first memorandum by October 1, 2014.

However, Comfort4U is a community based organization that requests the opinions and reviews of others. In order to fully complete the writing process of the memorandum, we underwent peer review. Peer Review provides us with constructive criticism on the document while simultaneously establishing our credibility. It is important that the people who have never heard of our company and our mission are able to clearly understand what the purpose of all of this is. The entire process of constructing the “ideal” chair is extensive, it’s critical to incorporate medical influences and engineering design that will please our customers. It’s an exciting step for Comfort4U to turn in this memorandum; it finalizes the first step into the creative process and affirms our position in this business.
