From Open Source Ecology
Jump to: navigation, search


The event develops assets beforehand, for active developemnt, but it also seeds future development- as always, it is only the beginning

Seed Eco-Home! A ten trillion dollar market. See Market Size.

General Breakdown

  • Template:Dev+ - technology dev
  • Template:Enterprise - enterprise dev
  • Modular breakdown to house components, variations of each, different products of product strateegy.
  • Metric of success - #people showing up. Hours logged. Prototypes successfully built. Each prototype is $500 and under for 100 of them x3 prototypes for each. Total budget for prototyping is $150k.
  • Modular Breakdown of house: wall (specific type is grid electric module, door module, window module, interior divider wall), floor, roof (variations are living roof, EPDM, metal, shingle, etc, Bathroom/Kitchen Module (panel with 2 sides for quick hookup, like in MH 1), Kitchen Module, PV Module, Stove Module, Internet Module, Grid electric Module, Water Hookup module, Foundation module compatible with panels, Biodigester module, greywater module.
    • For each module - there is a dozen or 2 dozen variations based on specific features or cost.
    • For each module, there may be submodules (wall - wall covering-interior; wall covering-exterior)
  • Interfaces - floor to foundation, floor joints, floor to wall
  • Experimental Team - Strawbpard for free panels ($30/pop), plastic parts with 4x8 printer, and CEBs). Otherwise it's off-the-shelf lumber, plastic, metal, and ceramic.
  • Products: Needs product strategy team.

  8. Panel House on a trailer.
  9. Telescoping panel house on a trailer (Steel frame module that telescopes on linear bearings), from 24x8 to 24x20 starter house that can be delivered at a slightly higher cost.

  18. Aquaponic greenhouse-as-a-service modular tilapia greenhouse for distributed agriculture (greenhouse built at a customer's site, as a service, removable once service contract is up (creative financing needs to happen here for the $5k install cost) )
  • People breakdowns - by business function of delivering a working enterprise: customer service, sales, marketing (copy and protocols such as getting on podcasts including Joe Rogan), production, shipping, packing, legal, website, branding, enterprise training.

Breakdown Tasks and Comlexity Management

The key to rapid velocity in hardware development is experience - and especially experience in prototyping. To add experience, we need to do excessive prototyping. We need to seed as much of the known as possible. This includes:

  1. Detailed SEBD - systems engineering for performance, enterprise, lifecycle, and OSE Spec integration. SEBD applies to the technology itself, but since we are developing an enterprise, we need a detailed generic SEBD that includes the enterprise level up to the point of sale in the framework of a distributed enterprise.
  2. Tech Tree of Choices for each component
  3. Rapid Prototyping Breakdown - details of TDD prototypes that can be started immediately for small partial tests that combined to the finished product.
  4. Test Driven Design Breakdown - a detailed list of specifications to test for - such as heating, power, speed, weight, and other quantities related to Calculations that can be tested and data-collected. This list can be started immediately upon start of Extreme Enterprise events - with data points collected rigorously throughout.
  5. Admissible Part List - we agree on the components that we are allowed to use - and we put them into FreeCAD as part libraries. 2 deliverables:
    1. FreeCAD part library of admissible parts
    2. BOM spreadsheet for the Approved Vendor List

Summary: One of the top challenges is prototyping, which would be done from the onset of the XE (Extreme Enterprise) event. Learn from the Open_Source_Hardware_Trap. And solution for the cost of prototyping is to fund it for the Extreme Enterprise event: Rapid_Prototyping_Breakdown
