As a hobby I also design and build high power model rockets, these rockets aren't like the little estes rockets you buy in the hobby stores that use A - E motor mine use I to N motors.

Conceptual design of the fixture, typically shared as an E-drawing.
Material consideration need to be discussed for each piece of the fixture, some parts of the fixture may have special part contact needs, for instant aluminum parts may need to be coated, anodization is preferred coating method and those pieces that are in contact with the product may need to be Hard Anodized otherwise other materials like plastics (Delrin) or stainless steel can be used. Product contact some times require special materials that are FDA and clean-room approved.
3) Approval of conceptual design and or any chances that had been made.
