					CONCEPT SCENARIOS FOR VALIDATION PROCESS

 User Group Analysis – Based on user research, through interviews, field
  observations, we were able to isolate user needs

 Define User Needs – Their needs help us direct generating concepts that places
  our products in a unique market space

 Analysis of Literature Review – Find supporting documents that further aids our
  development of concept scenarios as well as helping us sympathize with user
  needs
