The object of this paper was to facilitate a future team to create a smart backstop. The rationale is that consumers want more information on their pitching; a new backstop could capitalize on this trend. The methods used are market research with an AHP analysis of current backstops, an Axiomatic Design decomposition of a backstops job and financial analysis for future backstops. The results for the AHP analysis show the key factors for a current backstops, the Axiomatic Design decomposition extrapolates future key factors and a financial analysis helps future teams understand how to create the most valuable product. In conclusion, we have set up a design team to create a smart backstop with information on design parameters, functional requirements, and financial tools.
