Experimental development (engineering study) is a detailed project plan that identifies specific technical requirements. The final report will be an overall document, summarising many separate studies carried out by different specialists. It is a structured, multi-disciplinary engineering design with the purpose of identifying key project design features and providing a project cost estimate.
Both feasibility studies and engineering studies must focus on one of the following.
